MP3 of the Week: Eldridge Rodriguez "What A Difference A Drug Makes"

Over the past decade, the Beatings’ ELDRIDGE RODRIGUEZ has been one of the more prolific and distinguished voices in Boston rock, releasing 10 studio albums (six with band, four solo) that range from deconstructionist pop to noisy post-punk. On his latest effort, You Are Released (Midriff Records), Rodriguez further channels his inner Scott Walker for an experimental romp through themes of isolation, nature, and mortality, enlisting Wheat and Sarah Borges to fill out the record’s myriad sounds, moods, and vibes. First single “What a Difference a Drug Makes” is a swirling crooner’s tale spun straight through a sonic funnel, Rodriguez opening the number with the sneering line “Well, I got used to the headaches.” He drops You Are Released this Friday, April 1, at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston, alongside Pray for Polanski and Soccer Mom, but you can grab the “What a Difference a Drug Makes” MP3 below.
