“You Too” by Dree Leer

Dree Leer is a punk trio from Birmingham, Alabama. And if you are inspired in your post-pandemic travels to go check out a burgeoning music scene, this might be the one. Dree Leer is only the latest of our featured Birmingham artists this month, following The Blips and Janet Simpson, so again I say, there’s something going on in Birmingham. This is strong stuff and I reckon it comes across great live. 

The album is called Throw Hands, a properly aggressive title, and it will be out Friday. 
Where do you think they got their inspiration for this aggressive, proto-punk style? Well, check out this cover of The Stooges' "Now I Wanna Be Your Dog", with its Dr. Caligari-meets-Sunset Strip video:

The band’s leader, Jackie Lo, is a really good singer, and delivers the vocals with a lot of energy that allows them to cut through the glorious noise of this hard rocking punk attack. We’ll have a little more on this one soon. It’s out Friday (4/30) via Betamax Records.
