The Messthetics are quickly becoming our favorite improvised jazz/punk band featuring Brendan Canty and Joe Lally formerly of Fugazi. Their latest single, "Drop Foot," features a slightly bigger sound. It's a brisk song, which you would expect for the punk side of things, and there is quite a bit of noodling for the jazz side of it. But "Drop Foot" has a big sound to it, almost in a classic rock kind of way. In fact, the first 45 seconds or so has a hippie/jam band vibe. After that is over, the noise truly begins.
You can listen to "Drop Foot" below. Anthropocosmic Nest, the new album from The Messthetics, will be out September 6 on Dischord. You can pre-order the album here. For more on The Messthetics, check them out on Facebook.
