Drug

  • Lyrics
  • D is the fourth full-length studio album by the Texan band White Denim. It was released by Downtown Records on May 24, 2011. Despite receiving good reviews from most music critics, vocalist/guitarist James Petralli was critical of this track. He told UK music magazine the NME: "I'm glad that it exists, I'm glad we recorded it, but there are tunes on this record I like more than 'drug.' What's going on lyrically is almost painfully obvious, it's about social sedation, a Brave New World situation where things that you collect define you as a person. It's a waste of time. Drug is a ridiculous piece of music, I think."

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
