Thread | Do What You Do (Victory Garden)
Do What You Do is a feverish spark of rock music, charged by singer/guitarist Dylan Kemlo's abrasive, muffled vocals and viciously catchy guitar. Mixing fast, punky '70s style rhythms with a low down and dirty blues chorus line, this London trio fuse a variety of sounds together to create multi-layered, corrosive blasts of power rock. Kelmo's vocals dart furiously through the music like a rash, this being most evident in the last song, Beartrap, a sparse, guitar only ballad that reveals he can sound simultaneously like a cross between Mark Eitzel, Frank Black, and the under-valued but utterly fantastic punk stalwart, Patrick Fitzgerald.
