MP3 of the Week: DOM, "Jesus"

Worcester generally gets a bad rap. Turns out, it’s the rest of us who may be the suckers for not living there. Three-piece power-everything trio DOM call Worcester home for the sweet companionship of their equally catchy housemates, Goden Girls, but also for the sweet love they feel from the city itself. Dom’s “Jesus” might be the best thing to come out of Wormtown since Polar Orange Dry, and that’s saying a lot. If every song about Jesus were this awesome, it’d be the long lines that kept us all from going to church. And the rest of their Sun Bronzed Greek Gods EP (out now in a limited CD run and in early May on 10-inch vinyl from Boston’s Burning Mill Records) ain’t too shabby either. Shoegazey guitars? Thick, tapey distortion? Shades of Drop Nineteens? We need more Worcester! (And we never thought we’d say that.)
