Dredg anyone?

Post by yeshead 777 » Thu Jun 28, 2007 1:35 pm

You know me I get into some of the strangest music-or should I say out of character and not necessarilly proggy. Case in point-Dredg, a great modern band out of California I saw mentioned on PE a few months ago, so I listened to a few samples, watched a few cool videos,downloaded two CD's from i-tunes="Catch without Arms"(the best imo),and "El Cielo". And then bought the "Live at the Fillmore" for 10bucks at Best Buy. I don't listen to a lot of modern alternative, so its hard for me to compare or classify-but a lot of times it reminds me of a more melodic U2 or Radiohead, and sometimes much edgier and progressive. Great vocals and lyrics, and the guitarist uses a slide and alot of cool effects. I'd reccomend the live first-cause its so cheap-and you can apparantely find it easily.CWA is been in the no.1 or 2 slot on my rotation list for weeks-GREAT STUFF(thats until COA gets here!!!).

You must check out their videos on you tube-several really good ones-from live shows an tv shows, and you must check out singer Gavin Hayes' work on the slide(esp. with the screwdriver).They definetely changed their looks and sound in just 5 years.Some very punky and grundgy, some psychadelic,etc. Be sure and watch the "Same "ol Road" music video!, and "Bug Eyes" from the Jimmy Kimmel show.
