Even now, 5 years after its release, Brand New’s 'Daisy' is still a monumentally divisive record. It can never be looked back on in a nostalgic light (or at least not until they record something new), because the debate still rages over whether it was a solid contribution to their excellent canon, or the worst musical decision since Lars Ulrich thought that 'St Anger' snare sound was cool. There are those out there that appreciate Brand New’s most recent effort though, evidently among them Castleford quintet Allusondrugs, who take that album’s template of fiery grunge tempered with expansive, introspective moments, and fuse it with a love of classic grunge/alt rock in the vein of Nirvana and Pixies, much like their West Yorkshire compatriots Dinosaur Pile-Up.
With the exception of 'Cherry Pie', which throws the cat amongst the pigeons with a snotty blast straight outta ‘92, this eponymous record follows a similar course right the way through, which makes for a solid debut EP singling Allusondrugs out as a band to pay close attention to - in a sea of bands aping 'Your Favourite Weapon'-era Brand New, ripping off their sound from after they became interesting is an attractive USP. However, where musically and in vocal delivery it approaches the New Jerseyites, the lyrical content, at least in the first half of the release, is pure slacker-centric, as evidenced by their name and song titles like 'Ted, What's The Porn Like In Heaven?'.
Lovely words & a 4/5 from already-heardmusic
