The New Destruction Unit Record Is Gonna Be So Good

I couldn't find my headphones this morning when I got to work, so I started playing the freaky new Destruction Unit song on my laptop speakers. In only takes about six seconds for the drums to kick in, which is about how long it took for my coworker Liz to look up from her computer to say, sternly: "No." I think, under different circumstances, she would have been into the track, with its breathless pace and dust-cloud feedback, the Arizona crew's signature. But it was sorta early in the day for aggressively loud rock songs, I guess, and she was busy editing an interview or something. The track is off Negative Feedback Resistor, the psych band's new full-length LP, due September 18th on Sacred Bones. Destruction Unit's last record, Deep Trip, came out two summers ago—just like The FADER's GEN F profile on them. Like always, they're touring a ton; dates are below.
