OOooOOoo (SLOW DEMO) – DREGS

Very reminiscent of early Wavves, DREGS takes advantage lo fi to fashion a hazy and lulled atmosphere. I don’t know much about this group beyond that fact that they are teenagers from Los Angeles, but they have a lot going for them. Their demo, OOooOOoo, is slightly more melodic than songs by most bands who opt for clustered low fidelity recordings, which gives the track an almost entrancing feeling. Lyrically, the chorus is entirely summed up by the song’s title, but due to the aforementioned atmosphere, it seems totally appropriate. Unlike most lo fi, the vocals are very distinguished in the mix,. As lame and overused as this is, OOooOOoo is the kind of song that is suitable summer listening; but in terms of song writing, is about as gratifying as I’ve encountered in the past month.
