After a scorching demo and three standout contributions to the American Idylls compilation, Sorry State is proud to present the debut release from Raleigh, North Carolinaǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs Das Drip. When Das Drip went to record with Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business studio in Greensboro, North Carolina, they told him they wanted their record to sound like Government Issueǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs Legless Bull EP. While it does sound a lot like the explosive snot-punk of early GIǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs (as well as hormone overdoses like Gang Greenǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs This is Boston Not LA tracks or Negazioneǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs Tutti Pazzi EP), no one will mistake this for retro rehash. Most of Das Drip is double the age of your typical Teen Idle, and theyǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïve spent those years listening to and playing a lot more than just hardcore. Which isnǃˆ_—____Î_¨ït to say this is ǃˆ_—____Î__matureǃˆ_—____Î__ either; after all, how can you call a record ǃˆ_—____Î__matureǃˆ_—____Î__ when its catchiest lyrics are ǃˆ_—____Î__tapeworm hanging out your butt?ǃˆ_—____Î__ Most hardcore bandsǃˆ_—____Î_¨ï attempts to articulate rage and angst look like a three year oldǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs temper tantrum next to Das Dripǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs debut, which is wilder, faster, crazier, and more intense than pretty much anything you can toss at it. Maybe Das Drip is for people who donǃˆ_—____Î_¨ït like hardcore anymore because of the macho attitudes, unimaginative tunes, uninspired playing, or any number of other valid reasons. Really, though this record is perfect for anyone who wants the opposite of a Spotify playlist with the word ǃˆ_—____Î__chillǃˆ_—____Î__ in the title.
