Length: 21.0'

The Ukiah Drag are a five piece post punk, slowcore, indie rock, and no wave band from Florida and transplanted to Rhode Island 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, The Velvet Underground, Neon Blud, and Destruction Unit .  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.  Since their inception in 2013, The Ukiah Drag have released a four song 12" titled Jazz Mama Cryin' in June of 2013, a seven song LP titled In The Reaper's Quarters in September of 2014, and a two song 7" titled Dirt Trip.  Crypt Cruiser is The Ukiah Drag's latest four song EP, which was released via Wharf Cat records on September 4th, 2015.  On Crypt Cruiser, The Ukiah Drag offer up four tracks of stark and foreboding rock n' roll laced post punk.  Overall, Crypt Cruiser makes for a dark and unsettling listen.  Highly recommended.  Enjoy!
