EDITORS’ NOTES

No one does venomous tension and release like The Drones. The Melbourne roughneck guitar quintet switch it up for their seventh studio album, adding synths, drum machines and eerie production quirks to their established role as blues-based rock gods. “Taman Shud”—a listicle of political hot potatoes—and “Boredom” uncoil neck-jerking dance grooves; “Then They Came For Me” and “To Think That I Once Loved You” swim in celestial sounds. It’s a whole new tack for the band, though frontman Gareth Liddiard sounds as angry as ever.
