Best Supergroup: Scroll Downers

Not long after ruckus-causing noise punks Dope Body announced they would be calling it quits in April did two of the band’s members, Zachary Utz and David Jacober, who also perform as Holy Ghost Party, release a new, fantastic album. They were joined by veteran singer and CP contributor Lexie Mountain, who contributed to this issue but whose participation did not in any way influence this award, to form Scroll Downers, a roaring psych-rock band with wailing vocals, scuzzy riffs, and driving rhythms that call to mind early Sabbath and The 13th Floor Elevators. Don’t sleep on their debut, “Hot Winter.”
