Dramady – “Answer Only to The Sea” – [Cochon Records]
Dramady’s second release features two artists from Portland, Oregon. Amanda Wiles plays bass and tenor sax and Zachary Quinton Stanley plays drums, keys and vocals (usually simultaneously). They created their band name in 2006 because of all the hilarious life drama going on at the time and then made music about it. The second track, “2 ghosts in one costume”, has cool horns and a poppy beat played over a one long accordion note. “Keep it up” brings a synth-pop vibe that stays true to this upbeat album. Lyrics of simple times and hard lessons are well played through consistent vocal harmonies and great riffs. An indie delight!
