This week, we're excited to introduce you to Work Drugs, the group that calls themselves "Philadelphia's premier Bat Mitzvah and Quinceanera party band", according to their website. The three member band made up of Benjamin Louisiana, Thomas Crystal, and Joan Wellfleet throw together calming beats that would be great lava lamp theme song music, or perfect for your Seth Cohen inspired contemplative boat trip to Tahiti. On April 1st, the band will be releasing a double album debut in the form of Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. In anticipation to this release, we are providing an MP3 stream and a couple of music videos from the band for you all to check out.

Their sound is as unassumingly whimsical as their last names are, and their music videos are no different. Today we have a stream and a music video of their track "Curious Serge", as well as a music video for the song "Rad Racer".

The videos feature intentional low-quality vibes set to simple settings, such as driving a car and a day at the beach. However, they juxtapose these against dreamlike samples, including 90s-esque video game animations in "Rad Racer", and some swinging monkey clips in "Curious Serge". These suggest that they are keen on making commentaries with a laid back, mildly dazed attitude. This unaffected, mystifying approach makes for a smooth sonic digestion, so begin your Work Drugs education and take a listen to the MP3 and check out the videos below.
