CD Reviews

Awsome album, but hard to find...

"The other reviews say all you'll need to know, this album one of my personal favorites. The purpose of this message is to inform you that you can get this album for $13.99 from, just search for drink me and order direct. $35 is an exorbitant price for anything that isn't atleast a two disc set."
Ideal territory

"The land of nod is ideal territory for Drink Me, whose second album, "Sleep," was sadly to become what's apparently their final album. Their songs inhabit the land of aimless travels, of that purposeless stretch of night between midnight and 5am, on hazy drunken dream images of little green men and red sheep. Some darker tones are to be found on this sophomore release, yet the style and the substance are basically the same. "Train to Chicago" is like a beautiful lost Simon and Garfunkel song; "My Ship's Rolling In" ("Meet me on the poop deck of the love boat...") is so perfect and out of step with contemporary pop that it sounds like it must have existed since the 1920s, forgotten and recently unearthed in some dilapidated dockhouse or abandoned freight train; and "Ladies Underwear" mischievously depicts prurient interest in women's undergarments in the most lighthearted of fashions. As with their self-titled debut, every song on this album is perfect in its own way, and completely out of left field are revisions of the Song of the Ice Cream Truck, James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)", and "Crawdad Song," all of which work impressively well, for better or for weird. The sensibility here is unique. These are essentially like children's songs for adults.

Evans and Amft are from Brooklyn, NY, and they probably sound unlike any musical act ever to come from Brooklyn, NY, or anywhere else for that matter. In a way, though, their music sort of captures the sentiments you'd associate with the best solo subway performers. There's a richness here you don't find in more commercial and over-overproduced records. Try to get a hold of their 5-track Hello Recording Club EP entitled "NYC." Not only is it a better celebration of New York City than any song Frank Sinatra ever recorded, it also contains "Penthouse to Pavement," one of the cleverest and funniest of all Drink Me's songs."
The best album you never heard

"This is an indescribably great record: tuneful, mournful, melancholy but unsentimental. Syd Barrett meets Simon and Garfunkel and they form a jug band."
