Dasher SodiumKylee Kimbrough of Atlanta thrash-goth quartet Dasher upholds the intriguing drummer/vocalist combo tradition, placing lyrical content as supplementary (although Kimbrough’s searing, primitive vocal does play out like another instrument) to the tsunami of sound that is found on debut record Sodium.

You can’t help but feel the sticky floor of a dingy bar under your feet with every deafening kickdrum beat, which nods its head to bands like the Ramones and Minor Threat. Through the frenzied, accelerated climax to the title track (the fuzzed-out riffs in Get So Low and Soviet or the hypnotic head-bouncer Eye See), the energy of this record doesn’t drop below maximum for a single beat.

Sodium is out July 14 via Inertia.
