I’m dipping into the mailbag today for two cool submissions from two bands with two of the coolest monikers I’ve heard in a while. Let’s start with The Dead Kenny Gs.
First of all, I hate jazz. Truly. But this punk jazz thing–part Fugazi and part chaotic Miles Davis and part Morphine? I’m diggin’ it. Plus, they didn’t do the annoying thing of putting an apostrophe after the G in their name. Too many bands don’t know grammar. Check out The Dead Kenny Gs‘ new release, Operaion Long Leash, on Royal Potato Family records.
Blue Eyed Shark Experiment are, ironically, a more traditional-sounding band. But compared to the above band, that’s not saying much. Their new one, The Fluffer, is a collection of disparate, cool-sounding songs that I dug, separated by weird clips and samples. Neat stuff.
On Sidewalk 7 records.
