Imbibe with Dr Todd’s latest scuzzed up blues-rock hit, Give Me a Shot

Austin’s scuzz rock troubadours Dr Todd got intoxicatingly punch drunk in their latest off-kilter hit, Give Me a Shot. The riotously clever cocktail of no wave and blues-rock is potent enough to rival the frenetic fever of the Cramps and the Legendary Shack Shakers, but all reminiscences are extremely fleeting in the hedonistic anthem, which unravels to the tune of heavy distortion, resonator guitars, rock n roll attitude and whiskey fumes.

Based on Give Me a Shot alone, if you have the chance to see Dr Todd live; take it. Or at the very least, imbibe in the high energy catharsis.

Give Me a Shot hit the airwaves in May 2022 through Romgod Records. It is now available to stream on SoundCloud.

DeadFire have released their outlier uniting Drunk n Roll track, Anxiety Society


For any outliers grappling with the stranglehold of outcast anxiety, the latest Drunk n Roll track, Anxiety Society, from North East Scotland’s finest, DeadFire, has exactly what it takes to make the cortisol spikes and cold sweat worth it.

Around the down and dirty blues-rock riffs that are filthy enough to leave you feeling a little sticky, the jagged basslines feed the scuzzy and caustic energy that will take you right back to the time when Alice in Chains ruled supreme. Yet, as sonically enticing as Anxiety Society is, DeadFire set themselves leagues apart lyrically.

Tracks such as Anxiety Society force you to reflect on the candour of former rock icons. Anxiety was a thing long before the invention of rock, yet, why long did it take for artists to be as bold and vulnerable as this? If this doesn’t define the new golden era of rock, I don’t know what will.

Anxiety Society will officially release on February 11th, 2022. You can checkout DeadFire via Spotify, Facebook and Instagram.
