New Madrid is a shoegaze/rockabilly/surf-esq band from Springfield Missouri. New Madrid's releases are all lo-fi, and yet still easy to listen to. Run times on all the songs are long, Danger Room Demos clocking in at around 30 minutes. Vocals are far back in the mix, and what I can make out of them remind me of a lower end Dirt Nap vocal style. Instrumentation is loud, and bass is heavy, which I really enjoyed sitting back and listening to. There are some neat guitar riffs in here, and on a whole the release is really chill. The only downside is that it is a very long release to listen to, and the songs are a bit repetitive. However, each song is different so it's not like they all sound the same. So check it out. 

Favorite track: "Cruisin on the Brown Sound"
