I’ve never heard any of Buzz Osborne/King Buzzo’s solo work, or even much of his band The Melvins if I’m honest, but his new acoustic album with Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn came out on Friday, so let’s give it a whirl.
Unsurprisingly given the background of the two musicians, this is pretty abstract stuff, yet minimalist too. The album carries a sinister undercurrent, with the quasi-Indian sounds of ‘Delayed Clarity’ probably the high spot.
It’s interesting, yet somehow a bit boring at the same time. Having given it a few goes it’s not doing a lot for me.
