Last Night Tonight in Music, CD Release Party Edition: Mudhoney, Daguerreotypes
posted by May 20 at 9:00 AMon
Mudhoney’s playing a free in-store at Easy Street Queen Anne at 7 pm to celebrate the release of their new album The Lucky Ones, out on Sub Pop and in-stores today.
From the new record:
Daguerreotypes, Blue Light Curtain, Red Sea Sharks
(King Cobra) Tonight, Daguerreotypes celebrate the release of their new EP, Tropical Trust, which has a bunch of animals doing dirty things to one another on the cover—a toucan-like bird is eating a sloth’s asshole, a gorilla is butt-fucking a turtle, a beaver is sucking off a mountain goat—and in the center of it all there’s a line drawing of Jesus. Because why the hell not, right? Daguerreotypes’ music is jarring in its own way. Their folk-rock spine twists with both psychedelic and experimental influences. Singer John Fitzsimmons’s voice sounds almost muppetish on songs like “Telegram to Tegucigalpa” and “Dark Fence,” but it weirdly falls into place amidst an orchestra of “instruments” like a frying pan, an electric toothbrush, and a bottle.
