Posted in alt-country,country rock,grunge,pigfuck,psychedelic rock,punk rock by deek on April 27, 2009

Recorded at The Saltmine in Phoenix, Arizona in winter 2009, the album features the Kirkwood brothers, Cris and Curt, with drummer Ted Marcus.

Sewn Together will be released on May 12, 2009 on Megaforce Records.

Perfection in art is for subjective fools. The goal of any real artist is purity, and purity is a state of mind. Hamlet knew and told us. To thine own self, be true. In 2007, with the wayward absence of bassist Cris Kirkwood a hiccup since passed, the Meat Puppets simultaneously reformed and pledged a singular ferIn 2007, with the wayward absence of bassist Cris Kirkwood a hiccup since passed, the Meat Puppets simultaneously reformed and pledged a singular fervent purpose. Complete resurrection. That’s no small order. This is, after all, a band that stands out as one of the most illuminous sparks highlighting the first, and most overtly accomplished, coming of American indie rock, those golden and precious years lying roughly between 1979 and 1985. An era so filled with purity, it reigns supreme to this day with an embarrassment of musical riches. Many of them straight from the fingers of Kirkwood/Kirkwood/ Bostrom.

New one from Conor and the Mystic Valley Band. If you liked his self titled album, you’ll like this. Not like Bright Eyes at all, really, so don’t let that scare you off. Quality isn’t that great (says 160kbps), but if you like it, buy it when it comes out. That’s all, enjoy!
