The Tryout: The Drums
The Tryout, the post where I put up a new band each week, has been severely lacking so I've decided to make two changes. First, I'm going to move it from Mondays to Thursdays and I'm also going to lower my standards and put up buzzed about bands instead of just bands that I like.
So we'll kick off the new brand of Tryouts, here are The Drums, a Smiths-esque band hailing from Brooklyn. The songs are good but just not necessarily something I could see myself ever feeling the urge to listen to. They fall into that range of songs that I'd be happy to hear on the radio but wouldn't buy the album. Still, I felt the same way about Foster The People and while I'm not saying they have a "Pumped Up Kicks" breakout, I wouldn't be surprised if these guys found a good sized following.
