Apache Dropout

#sxsw #ApacheDropout


Listen to Sam Phillips Rising

Apache Dropout is a full on lysergic boogie trio from Southern Indiana. They've self-released a handful of recordings while touring the sub-U.S. during the past couple years. Their debut self-titled LP was released in early 2011 on Family Vineyard and has been heralded as the best garage album of the year by likes of Mojo, Uncut and Dusted. With mostly guitar/bass/drums they channel soul melodies, primitive rock thump and blasted solos and turn them into highly textured nuggets of punk art. In wake of the LP, the labels Mexican Summer and Trouble in Mind have issued 7" records by Apache Dropout in 2011. Formed in 2008, the group's previous endeavors include John Wilkes Booze (Kill Rock Stars), Hot Fighter #1 and Lord Fyre (Emperor Jones).
