NEW BUZZ: Drakulas, out of Austin, Texas, released their debut album on November 18.

Raw Wave is the debut album from Texan band Drakulas, and their sound is as big as their home state’s reputation.

It features members of Rise Against! and Riverboat Gamblers, and they’re somewhere between punk and psychobilly, genre-wise.

Most of their songs clock in under three minutes, and are fast-paced without running into one another.

Their lyrics are super fun, and verging on cheeky and occasionally NSFW - see Fist Fight at Ponchos for a prime example.

If you’re looking to get hooked within two minutes and 27 seconds, have a burl at My Name in Your Mouth.

Other applause-worthy tracks include opener I’m Getting Out, and Venus Retreat.

This stands proudly alongside some of the top punk-rock-whatever releases of 2016.
