7″ Review: Best Friend

Band: The Drums
Release: 3/2010
Label: Moshi Moshi

1. “Best Friend” – A-
2. “Baby, That’s Not the Point” – C+
3. “You’re the Only One Who Makes Me Happy” – B

Comments: Quirky post-punk/art rock comes from these Brooklyn jammers. With elements of surf, baroque pop, and electronica, “Best Friend” comes through as a success. The echo-laced vocals on “Baby” don’t really get my ears buzzing, to borrow a phrase from Hunx. “You’re” is a return to form with a very catchy bass sequence despite stale vocals.

Grade: B (84)
