Marijuana Deathsquads featured on Daytrotter

Daytrotter is all up in the Twin Cities scene again. Just yesterday we saw Gabe Douglas of the 4onthefloor tweeting that his band was down at the Daytrotter studios in Rock Island, Illinois recording a session, and today the site posted a three-track performance by revolving electromanipulators Marijuana Deathsquads.

Not only is this session one of the first opportunities to hear what Marijuana Deathsquads' forthcoming album might sound like (the other being

this City of Music video they recorded at the Sound Gallery

), but it's also accompanied by some of the most proficient descriptions of the band that I've seen published outside the Twin Cities.


"You can just shut your eyes and feel the dizziness take over, move you around the floor, twist you over the cushions or into the thin sheets of a bed," writes Sean Moeller. "You feel as if you could be arrested for just being where you are right now, as if you've done something immoral that you don't even remember, as if the fog's either just wearing off or it's just setting in."


Listen to the whole session here, and keep your eyes on the Daytrotter site for the forthcoming 4onthefloor recordings.
