Nashville indie rock label Jeffery Drag Records is proud to announce the details for the first release from new signing Western Medication. From their association with Jeffery Drag alone, one might imagine the band having a southern-fried garage rock aesthetic similar to other JDR signees, such as Natural Child, Turbo Fruits, or Bad Cop.

However, Western Medication is actually a melodic post-punk outfit that channels a tasty mix of early Joy Division, Wire, and British new wave circa 1985. Their debut 7″ EP, The Painted World, is set for release on January 29th, 2013, and promises to be one of JDR’s most compelling releases.
