Dayeater’s ‘Mr. III’ is dense, trippy hard rock with a fuzzy throwback sensibility. The band, “featuring Austin’s worst-one-handed-guitar-player Jesse Lee,” they say, “has been jamming around Texas since 2014.” This “faced-paced, fun jam,” is the first single from their upcoming record. After a disorientingly fuzzy intro, the band jumps into the equally distorted body of their song. Some intense, straightforward chug-oriented guitar sections give way, at several points in the song, to whirring, unhinged solos. Under this one-handed guitar work, a competent rhythm section puts down a somewhat complex, but not overbearingly so, platform for the song’s melodic elements to lay on. Over everything, some strong, retro vocals reminiscent of groups like MC5, Blue Cheer and Led Zeppelin finish off the track’s intensely trippy vibe. These guys really know what they’re doing.
