Destruction Unit, Ukiah Drag, Joint D

When: Mon., Sept. 16, 9 p.m. 2013

Deep Trip, the new album by narcotized Arizona rockers Destruction Unit, is almost aptly named. Indeed, these eight songs are outward bound, with guitar lines that chase their own tails and travel through space like smoke rings. But Destruction Unit's space rock depends as much on rock as it does space, with each trip bound loosely to a dead-ahead ripper that recalls frontman Ryan Rousseau's former life with Jay Reatard. These songs are somehow anxious and at ease, fueled by an unnamed cocktail of extreme uppers and downers that have been swallowed in one sudden gulp. This Trip is more heavy than deep, though, as every time Destruction Unit starts to get too far out, there's another aggressive tantrum to pull them back in. —Grayson Currin
