Listening to BUCK GOOTER you hear contradictions of caterwauling, cacophonous railing; screaming, snarling and gnashing hurled over drony beats and jarring guitar lines. One can’t help thinking to oneself if this is a white-trash parody of trailer park life, a punk-rock free-style or some sort of crypto-intellectualizing with a ciphered message. Whatever the intention, one gets a kind of involuntary headbanging, arm-shaking, thrashing reaction to it from the second their huge sound starts. Their new album, Witch Molecules, was released last month on Germany’s X Mist Records, and was recorded by Don Zientara at Inner Ear in Arlington, Virginia.
Frank Copenhaver, the central presence in the rotating cast of musicians and friends that makes up the psychedelic folk group HURRICANES OF LOVE, has chosen an appropriate name for his music project. Copenhaver himself is a force of nature, an ebullient enthusiast of goodwill and good vibes—in a recent interview, he described two different places as “paradise on earth.” And he has no fixed location, landing, he says, “where the wind would take me.” — from Metropulse.
THE RITCHIE WHITE ORCHESTRA is one of life’s sonic rewards. An exploration in aural dissonant lollipops perfect for the brain. Comprised of anyone and everybody the Orchestra has featured some distinguished collaborators in the past – Lydia Lunch, Stephin Merritt, Roddy Bottum, Matt Fishbeck and more. As Jacqueline Susaan writes, “You have to climb to the top of Mount Everest to reach the Valley of the Dolls.”
