Dva Damas “Nightshade”
Indie music website Boomkat described this album as “swaggering songs for serial killers,” and to be honest, I can’t think of a more apt description. If Tarantino wasn’t too busy appropriating blaxploitation films (I kid, I kid), I can totally see “Nightshade” sitting proudly on one of his soundtracks. The LA duo have that perfect blend of retro California rock and vampish, Western swag. I was surprised at how much I loved their debut Nightshade, a short but nice introductory album with plenty of that lazy sass one might expect from a band like Dva Damas. They’re currently touring with Tropic of Cancer in Europe, but you can pick up both Nightshade and their 10″ from Boomkat.
