Pharmacy of Love

Bettie Serveert is one of the most underrated and underappreciated bands to come out of the grunge era. But despite forming almost 20 years ago, as the ‘90s were just dawning, Bettie Serveert did not fade away or implode as many of their contemporaries. Nor did they achieve the level of success or recognition of those of their peers whom lasted the test of time. They simply continued to crank out albums. And on this, the band’s ninth full length, Bettie Serveert provides more proof that it is perhaps the most consistent band to come out of the alt-rock era. Guitars shimmer and blast over singer Carol van Dyk’s tough angel vocals. The band obviously still knows its way around a melodic power-pop tune, and songs like the nine-and-a-half minute “Calling” provide a nice touch of epic jam. At nine songs and 38 minutes, Pharmacy of Love provides just enough alt-esque guitar rock that one almost yearns for the years of The Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream and Belly’s Star. The problem with the slacker decade was that most of its music didn’t stand the test of time. Bettie Serveert has. (
