Bedroom Rehab Corporation: Red Over Red

If Death from Above 1979 played the blues and sang a lot less about sex, you'd get something similar to what Bedroom Rehab Corporation are doing on Red Over Red. The duo of Adam Wujewicz (bass, vocals, and pedals) and Meghan Killimade (drums) are like any other drum and bass band in that they are only a drummer and a bassist, but any other similarities end there. This is not the tear up the dancefloor drum 'n' bass of Pendulum; this is more like early Isis heaviness meets Death from Above's fuzzed-out riffs. The inner sleeve of the CD emphatically states: "THERE ARE NO GUITARS OR KEYBOARDS ON THIS ALBUM," the obvious inference of which is that many have confused BRC's low-end heavy sonic with the guitar stylings of innumerable sludge and doom bands. This is where BRC have a leg up stylistically; the opening seconds of "S.S. Hangover (Sobering Sickness)" do for a moment sound like a deeply distorted Les Paul, but Wujewicz has a clear command of his instrument and the pedals he runs it through. His tendency for blues-like riffs and scales is a nice throwback to the classic heavy metal of Black Sabbath. Likewise, Killimade's drumming—though at times underproduced compared to the bass—is a powerful complement to this music. Suffice it to say that if you have subwoofers and this is the album in the stereo, your whole house will be rumbling.
