While Britain is getting all gooey eyed over Britpop V.2, the US continues to manufacture its garage rock revolution. With bands like Fidlar, Parquet Courts and a returning Wavves all making… erm… waves across the pond it seems only natural that others would follow suit. Mississippi’s Nuggets loving princes Bass Drum of Death are the latest group to try and cure us of that B-Town curse. ‘Bass Drum of Death’, the group’s second album, isn’t going to get you stroking your chin and thinking about chord sequences; it’s going to force you to get on your feet and drink far too many beers.

It’s a fuzzy, scuzzy summer delight for people who just want to have a good time, because when it’s sunny, intellectualism just doesn’t matter. It’ll never be a classic, but this album proves one thing – nostalgia induced rock can work. Britpoppers take note. It just has to be fun.
