The Dry Mouths – And Show Us

The Dry Mouths – And Show Us
Aneurisma Records – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Grunge, Alternative
Rated: ****

Our Spanish friends from The Dry Mouths have delivered yet another superb album. Going from a foursome to a trio will always influence the music. But in this case it has only been beneficiary. For where their second album Moons True Delay Length Wah Foo Era seemed to be teeming with possibilities without ever truly exploring them. Their third album And Show Us seems more steadfast and ready to go do the actual ground work. They delve headfirst into the alternative rock and grunge of the nineties and spice it up with some stoner influences and intense breaks. But it never becomes too much, it shows maturity and shows they have become masters in choice. They explore and experiment but now also have the keen observation to go the simple route when necessary.  And then there’s Dawn Of The Star. Which takes everything done before to a completely different level. Aiming for prog and post and the outer reaches of the universe…
