Western Medication (Nashville, TN)
Returning to St. Louis touting their new "Taste" LP!
Western Medication administers heavy doses of revved-up punk grooves. The Nashville rock band is back with their second album, Taste, a glittering collection of songs that blend the gritty basement energy of their DIY roots with the ecstatic raptures of peak Madchester. Taste is a fitting follow-up to Western Meds' 2016 debut, The Entertainers' Secret. More ambitious, more dynamic, more polished and potent. "We were just getting away from aggressive post-punk and punk," singer/guitarist Justin Landis says of the guiding principle behind the album. "We wanted to get into the groove."
Western Medication's musical tastes and tendencies have developed from the post -'77 U.K. punk influences on their earliest releases to the lush rock and roll orchestration of Taste. The scope of the new album draws heavily from The Stone Roses, Primal Scream and Happy Mondays. The band's lineup coalesced around the release of The Entertainer's Secret and developed a strong musical repartee as Western Medication toured extensively, supporting artists like Bob Mould, Bully, Diarrhea Planet and Jeff the Brotherhood.
