Ohio alt-rock outfit Lovedrug originated with lead singer Michael Shepards attempt to give up music for film, including a stint of film school in NYC, before his first love of music dragged him back (hence the tongue-in-cheek band name).
Yet the new single and album, recorded in their adoptive home of Nashville, oddly realize both interests. On the one hand, the recordings showcase indie songs with sufficient appeal to subvert the mainstream, a true rock band in live-to-analog-tape vein (think Jack/Raconteurs). On the other hand, the new music video for DINOSAUR was written and directed by Shepard.
Ah, the ying and yang of it all.
