The Pharmacy is one of those bands that’s been around for a while, making kick-ass music mostly under the radar on three LP, some 7-inches and a whole bunch of live dates over the past decade.
After a stint in New Orleans, the group is back home in Seattle, where the trio recorded a new EP, “Dig Your Grave.” The title track is a riveting blast of garage-pop, featuring an insistent melody laced with fuzzed-over keyboards, jangling guitars and taut, tight drums, all delivered at a breakneck pace. It’s one of four songs on the EP, which is out on Wisconsin’s Kind Turkey label.
The Pharmacy has also just released a video for “Dig Your Grave,” and it’s a super-awesome Super 8 construction filmed to resemble a campy horror movie. Graphic? Yes. But after the throat-slitting, the ghouls rock out around a bonfire, so there’s that. The group has scheduled an enormous two-month coast-to-coast tour, including a bunch of dates at SXSW.
