I was reading the album reviews in the Archive section of Uncut Magazine when I happened upon an album that was awarded a 10/10 rating which equals a Masterpiece choice. The English band, East Village was unknown to me and their reissue was titled, Dropout. I was skeptical why a recording by a band I had never heard of had achieved such a high score.
I soon learned why they earned such respect 😉
The group recorded 10 songs for the album, Drop Out in 10 days in 1990, then disbanded the following year. The album weaves a cerebral, hypnotic spell. Give them a listen and become enchanted as a result.
