Chewers, The – “Dead Dads” – [Self Released]
Cavemen Travis Caffrey and Michael Sadler are this duo from the deep West Virginia hills who have since relocated to Nashville, TN. Great fucking lyrics, super off-the-wall, and yet thought provoking at the same time.
Killer fucking skronky, heavy, driving rock that leans toward the silly side. Nice succinct tracks with crazy loud overblown bass thumping along. I love the ironic use of autotune vocals on ‘I Wanna Be Friends With Your Kids,’ and inimitable lyrics on ‘Cyclisism,’ ‘Curtains,’ ‘Dig the Pit,’ and ‘It’s All The Rage.’
Play for the nonsense, stay for the conscience.
