#songoftheday / REVIEW: ALLUSONDRUGS: “I’M YOUR MAN”

With vocals and lyrics ripped straight out of the Kurt Cobain songbook, Allusondrugs’ vibrant “I’m Your Man” proves that they stand at the top of the pile of post grunge bands competing for the Nirvana slot when grunge finally comes back around.  Of course, nothing ever sounds quite like it used to when it comes back, and there’s something of a 2013 guitar vibe happening here, but from the other songs we’ve heard from the band’s EP we’d also have to mention what would seem to be the band’s hidden fondness for psychedelic rock and heavy metal, which is buried under their EP’s  layers of (mostly) recorded live sound, even if you have to peel back the banana peel to taste it.  One should also mention that the West Yorkshire-born band’s music goes down as smoothly as a Cadbury Dairy Milk bar.  Sweet, slightly bitter, and impossible to resist.
