Driving Home in Reverse
3.5 out of 5 stars
It’s really refreshing when an artist can write heart-wrenching cathartic material and make listeners say ‘Fuck, yeah,’ instead of ‘Fuck life!’
Boulder trio Artist Drowning does just that on Driving Home In Reverse, an album that chronicles two life-changing tragedies for vocalist/guitarist/bassist Chris Martin, who wrote the entire album. With a gritty, ’90s rock and roll fuzz, Martin pours his heart out on Driving Home, but he approaches it all with a sort of J. Mascis-style of guitar that keeps the album slightly upbeat and slightly sinister.
