New Local Releases: Decaffeinated Grapefruit

Decaffeinated Grapefruit

Decaffeinated Grapefruit plays with genres on Drift, seven songs that range from 1990s-drenched grunge to psychedelic experimentation with a prog-rock underbelly. From the audio samples to the rocking guitar solos, DG have a way of making the songs sound big, while pushing against narrow genre expectations, particularly on tracks like the instrumental “Sludge.”

Drift is a record for classic-rock fans — those who enjoy proto-metal bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, and music with a slightly dramatic flair. Though the album feels dark, its rhythms keep it driving forward, as if pushing onward through a rainy, windy night, metaphorically speaking.
