Chillin’ in Roanoke while the boys practice downstairs. Here’s a photo from a show back in Nashville last week (?) at Betty’s Grill out on the west side. Apache Dropout is from Bloomington, great dudes who know how to have a good slumber party.
Fun show this morning. Jen joined me in the studio. Many good song. Many new song. Many fun happy. I dedicate this set to my brother Carlin who is currently recovering from a minor surgical operation. Bros, Hoes, and sweatclothes.

Artist: Apache Dropout Track: Nothing In My Hand Album: Apache Dropout Label: Family Vineyard Year: 2011
Lo-Fi psychedelic is now a thing.
Apache Dropout takes a fuck everything DIY approach to creating music to wig out to, and the result is sketchy and dirty, yet compelling and intense… kind of like rendering you bathroom unusable by growing ‘shrooms in your bathtub.
Archie Andrews and his pals are zombies. "Undead. Jughead. Undead. Jughead.“ So don’t say I don’t like Halloween. Love how the singer channels Rocky Horror Picture Show in the bridge near the 0:50 second point.
Undisciplined, spastic, and down right raw, southern Indiana’s Apache Dropout release their debut with fists-a-blazing. Still too young to legally buy alcohol, Apache Dropout channels the convergence of legendary Sun Records, Louisville’s punk/art scene, as well as 1960’s edgier psych-rock forefathers. Despite the trio’s hallmark rebellious teenage tendencies, they are clearly playing beyond their years and it is even more undeniable that they are no fluke.
