>> An explosive collision of garage punk and weirdo art rock from Sacramento’s most exciting export since Mayyors. Clean Living Under Difficult Circumstances is a strange, haunting thrill ride driven by angular guitars, an unhinged drum attack and the dynamic, sometimes violent vocal delivery of Whittney K. Featuring long time members of the Sacramento punk scene, Drug Apts have released two E.P.s on Tyler Pope’s (LCD Soundsystem, !!!) Berlin based label, Interference Pattern Records, the first produced by Death Grips’ Zach Hill and Andy Morin, the second by Dub Genius and Slits producer Denis Bovell.”The band name is a reference to drug apartments, those Mid-Century Modern complexes scattered throughout Sacramento, with rows of palm trees out front and mock English names like Dorchester Court or the Royal Arms. Common features include: concrete stairs, prison-style walkways with dudes looking in your window every five minutes, moms beating their kids next door and cop car lights reflecting off the pool. An ex used to say, “I hate living in these fucking drug apartments,” and friends would say, “It’s three blocks that way, past the drug apartments.” We all spent time staying up and crashing in them, or we tried to sleep through the noise emanating from their windows. I hear they’re better these days, but who knows? So the name is rooted in places and times.”

Both Thiemann and Tozer also play in Tiki Dreamers with Justin Trosper (Unwound). Drug Apts will be touring with Trosper’s other project, Nocturnal Habits, upon the release of the album.
