Sieg Howdy! Sampler

Some momentous, delightful additions to Rhapsody this week for the staff here at R&S. First off, the recently released second collaboration between the Melvins and Jello Biafra, Sieg Howdy! After several listens, I consider this two records. The first seven tracks are a clear, loud collection of pure Jellvins. The last three tracks are remixes (of unique songs) and thus sonically a brother from another mother. All have something to offer the neglected volume knob.

Six months ago(?!) in a post of Melvins covers source material I included Halo Of Flies by Alice Cooper. At that time the song was a long-time recurring friend in the Melvins live show, but hadn't been recorded. Well, that's taken care of in grand style here on Sieg Howdy! It's the most soul satisfying voyage of surgical bombast I've heard in quite some time.

P.S. In other Rhapsody developments, several pages of Tzadik Records releases were added earlier this week, including quite literally a hundred or so John Zorn albums. A deep, rich mine for exploration to be sure. For today, let me just suggest the 121 tracks of the Naked City Complete Studio Recordings.
