‘Abysmal Thoughts’ is full of youthful yet distinguished songwriting. The Drums’ latest foray into indie-surf-rock darts through playful melodies and lightweight lyrics and when it connects, on tracks like Heart Basel and Mirror, it is fresh and urgent: a delicious musical margarita. It’s music for pool parties attended by skinny hipsters with little dogs.
