Label: Wharf Cat Records
Tracks: 7
Length: 36.0'

The Ukiah Drag are a five piece post punk, slowcore, indie rock, and no wave band from Florida and transplanted to New England who formed in 2013, by the looks of things.  The Ukiah Drag play a dark, foreboding, and sinister sounding style of music that seamlessly combines elements of post punk, indie rock, and dark rock n' roll music within their sound.  Musically, The Ukiah Drag can be said to be influenced by bands such as Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, Iggy And The Stooges, and The Velvet Underground, and possibly The Doors.  The Ukiah Drag's sound has a psychedelic quality that's reminiscent of being lost somewhere in the desert night maybe in Arizona somewhere at 3 in the morning.  The Reaper's Quarters is the band's latest full-length LP, which was released via Wharf Cat records in September of 2014.  The Reaper's Quarters features seven tracks of stark and foreboding tracks of rock n' roll laced post punk that's an absolute must listen for fans of Neon Blud, Destruction Unit, and other like minded musical misanthropes.  Overall, The Reaper's Quarters is a dark and unsettling listen.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
