Man Vs. Magnet

By: Laurie Gallardo

The praises for L.A.-based band The Distillers on the Third Man Records site, where the band’s single “Man vs. Magnet” is available on vinyl, set the record straight. “To call The Distillers simply a punk band doesn’t do justice to either the band or the word ‘punk,'” runs the narrative, and it’s on point. Songwriter/vocalist/guitarist Brody Dalle takes the whole damn thing to several cerebral levels, making it clear that having depth amidst the debauchery is not a bad thing. There’s a reflective mind working within the wreckage and chaos, an intellect clicking with all the explosiveness.

Since reuniting last year for a run of dates, The Distillers have been going nonstop on a tour rush, and their current run includes a gig in Austin this Wednesday night at Emo’s, 2015 E. Riverside Dr., with Death Valley Girls opening the show. That’s a whole lotta hell yes. Doors at 8 p.m. Very recommended.
