MM Shorts 386: Work Drugs

Work Drugs are back with a first taste from their forthcoming album Mavericks.

West Coast Slide is another example of their smoothly confident, upbeat indie pop that hums and fizzes with energy and an ultra catchy chorus. Download it below.

MM Plays Catch Up. We’re busy catching up on a few things we weren’t able to post over the past few days.

So, without further ado, here are some brilliant new ones including The Mountain Goats, the languid country rock of The Futurebirds, a brilliantly intense offering from Cloud Nothings, more icy electronica from Work Drugs, indie pop from Gross Magic and the psych blues rock of White Denim and lastly the insanely catchy Strokes like indie rock of The Dig.

We were slow getting round to posting the first track from Work Drugs, which only went up on Saturday, but we’re glad to say we’re much quicker out the blocks today.

Dog Daze is a new track from the duo, and is another blissed out track of indie pop goodness. All we need to say is that they’ve kept up the standard of the first release. Appropriately enough we had it on repeat this morning as the perfect soundtrack to walking the dog over the frosty ground.

Again, you can watch the video and then download below.

Work Drugs describe themselves as a sedative-wave / smooth-fi group from an abandoned pier on the banks of the Delaware River in beautiful Philadelphia, PA.

Work Drugs is Benjamin Louisiana (more instrumental/less vocal) and Thomas Crystal (more vocal/less instrumental). Their first single Third Wave was ‘released’ at the start of the year and is a slyly seductive track – it’s a few parts chillwave… a few parts indie pop, but all good. Very good!

Watch/download below.
