This Friday, The Dreebs are coming to Boston to release their latest masterpiece, Forest of a Crew. For longtime fans, Forest focuses everything The Dreebs excel at into what strikes me as their definitive statement and an easy contender for best album of the year.
Jordan Bernstein is still the most original guitarist alive and manages to offer up new sounds for even the most jaded experimental music heads. Adam Markiewicz leans into his sacred chorus-of-one, but also stretches out into some Show Me The Body-esque Versace flows. And while the band has always flirted with rock gestures and tribal grooves, Forest finds them embracing the genre unambiguously, with Shannon Sigley seemingly reinventing the 4/4 from scratch. This may be the first Dreebs show I go to where folks will be dancing.
If you’re new to The Dreebs, you may have a hard time believing that these sounds are 100% live no effects, so come see for yourself and witness one of the greatest bands of our era reinvent the game in real time.
