“Lazy Slave”, the new single from Dope Body, is from their upcoming Drag City release Natural History, which is set to be released May 22. With heavy stuff like this, there is always a fine line between overproduced cheeseballs and that gut-satisfying grind. Dope Body were always on the grind side with their earlier releases, partly because they were so low-fi. Here, the production gets better, making everything clearer, but the again dodges the cheddar by emphasizing the weird shrillness of the guitar, making it almost equal to the vocals on top of the mix, and putting a deep echo on the snare. The Baltimore three piece is now a four piece, and the song builds on that increased ability to get WILD, growing into a untamable beast by the end.
