Blood Drive is an amalgam of quite a variety of influences, sitting somewhere in what we call Garage Psych Punk. Garage in that we like it raw. Psych in that we like a variety of sounds and soundscapes. Punk in that we like it raw. Despite the rawness of it all, we also like to play music that you can sit back and sip a little wine and marvel at what sophisticated gentlemen we can be when we set our minds to it. The truth is we have no idea how to describe this stuff. The best thing you can do is listen.
In brief, you should know the following about us: our band was established in September 2015, and has been responsible for providing outstanding music ever since. Our specialty is in the area of making loud noises, often with melodius undertones… overtones? Our regular customers particularly value the sounds we put into their ears. If you haven’t been to Boston, Blood Drive is the perfect excuse to fly, walk, swim, or unicycle your way out here. Hope to see you soon!

Antikythera MechanismThis song is a rehearsal recorded on a hand held recorder. We don't have any special recording aparati for making better recordings at the moment so this will have to do. We do, however, plan on getting into the studio A.S.A.P.
Stalactites and Stalagmites (Instrumental Improvisation)
Stalactites and Stalagmites (Instrumental Improvisation)This song is about caves. The jagged stalactites and stalagmites that look like a mouth full of craggy teeth. Maybe it makes sense, maybe it doesn't, but again, it's all part of the creative process.
Beaded Elephant (Instrumental Improvisation)
Beaded Elephant (Instrumental Improvisation)Room recording at our rehearsal space of an impromptu jam. We're letting you in on the creative process here. Organic Punk. Yes there is such a thing.
