Thursday Fresh Catch Playlist, Backwoods Edition
I've been roaming the Rhapsody catalog wantonly the last couple weeks, so the fresh catch love fest goes on. The current obessions with off-kilter classical tracks is represented by this intense grind from the Kronos Quartet. It makes me think of the beginning of Wilco's Misunderstood with its nipples clamped to a car battery and stretched out over six minutes, with no drums. Or maybe being tied to a pole watching a slow oncoming cloud of wasps. Delightful.
Scissorfight is a New Hampshire institution hellbent on exploring and enriching New England mythology. How Planet of Ass fits into that schema is open to interpretation. If you're at all curious, beware that they are one of the growing number of bands whose catalog is split over three different identical band names in Rhapsody.
