Modern Men

Don Drapery

Don’t let the name fool you — Don Drapery isn’t a hotshot curtain maker who works at a company called Sewing-Cooper. It’s a Columbus, Ohio, band made up of two enterprising musicians: Jason Turner and Dan Gillis. In fact, the only obvious thing the band has in common with Mad Men is its love of retro. Vintage R&B and surf guitars trade time with post-punk angles and rhythms in Don Drapery’s catalog of songs. “Folks In Charge” is a loose-limbed, herky jerky rocker brimming with a rough sort of joy. On “I Can’t Apologize,” the duo combines ’50s-era pop tropes with modern-day sentiments like, “You say everything sucks.” From the spaghetti guitars of “No Place To Raise A Child” to the sparkle and distortion of “Hard To Survive,” Don Drapery gives a callback to rock’s glory days without losing their footing in the modern age.
