Pharmacy isn’t the only new release Eugene Ward, aka Tuff Sherm, aka Dro Carey, has out this week. While Pharmacy is a physical 12 inch released via Trilogy Tapes, he’s also released a brand new digital-only EP under his Dro Carey name. There’s a lot of data to digest here, and I’m having trouble presenting it in a linear fashion, so just bear with us.
Back to the topic at hand, Pharmacy is the first proper vinyl release for Tuff Sherm, the more rhythmically-straightforward project of Dro’s. As he told us in an interview, there have been cassettes, but Pharmacy feels like a real stepping up: there are elements reminiscent of Shackleton’s less step-infused material, but listen to when the snare kicks in here, and I bet you didn’t expect it to be right there, where it is. Anyway, have a listen.
