Submission Accomplished: Dope Skum | Tanasi

Music that makes you want to take meth, live in a trailer and blow up shit.


Thanks to the inexplicable popularity of my Submit Music page — along with the endless number of releases I get via HumanHuman, Groover and SharePro — I always have a massive digital backlog of albums, EPs, singles and videos awaiting my perusal. Here’s another recent must-hear, along with the Bandcamp link so you can buy the music straight from the source. Tell ’em I sent ya. And if you’ve got something I need to hear, send it my way. If I think you’re half as good as you think you are, I just might include you next time.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Big ol’ southern stoner riffs. Conceived towards the tail end of 2020 by a couple of friends with a background in punk and an interest in heavy music, this duo released Tanasi, their debut EP, in March. Nastier than an old timer’s moonshine mash, this five-track effort stands on a rock-solid foundation of sludgy stoner metal with a notable punky inflection. Raw, raucous, and generally mammothian riffs. Weedeater, Iron Monkey, EyehateGod, and Toke all qualify as influences and suitable aesthetic comparisons.”

MY TWO CENTS: Music that makes you want to take meth, cut the sleeves off all your shirts, grow a beard and a mullet, live in a trailer with your sister and blow up shit with homemade explosives. Not necessarily in that order.
