This week's Off-Ramp song of the week is "Drummers" by Deepakalypse.
Deepakalypse is the solo project of singer/songwriter Deepak Krasner, a native of Ventura, California.
In his bio, Deepakalypse cites folk punk icons like Billy Bragg and Jonathan Richman as huge influences, but "Drummers"is a laid back, unpretentious, politically charged tune with bare bones production and a plainspoken directness last seen in the rare moments when the Minutemen would give their drummer a break and GO acoustic.
Appropriately, the video for "Drummers" shows Deepak on a skateboard, guitar in hand, gliding downhill around Southern California. Check it out above.
"Drummers" comes off "Floating on a Sphere," Deepakalypse's latest record, and it's out now on Everloving Records.
