On a side note i wish this was under the Melvins banner as generally im not a fan of short lived side projects. Crystal Fairy??? What a terrible band name. Odd that 'Hold It In' or 'Three Men And A Baby' were also collaborations but still credited as "Melvins" whereas this is considered separate from that. I love Teri but personally i'd have it as just Buzz, Dale and Omar.

https://www.instagram.com/crystalfairyband/


I think it will be interesting to see if now Buzz has worked with Omar, if a load of people from here all of a sudden are going to be big Omar fans. Which kind of happened with Le Butcherettes. Almost no one here cared about the band until they got the Melvins seal of approval.

I respect Omar as a guitarist and producer. I just don't care much for his actual music. I would bet that this project will be great.

 I checked out a few Mars Volta albums around a decade ago. They were OK, but IMO way overrated. I saw Antemasque 2 yrs ago, with Le Butcherettes opening. Antemasque was much more listenable than MV, but still didn't really stand out to me. It's mainly the vocals that lose me.

Post by: Bigval on October 04, 2016, 06:36:56 PM
Interesting.

I dare say the reasons this collab isn't under the Melvins name are a) control, if it's under the Melvins name Buzz & Dale dictate terms not sure a guy like Omar would go for that and b) a lot larger potential exposure of Crystal Fairy taking off then it otherwise would under the Melvins name.

They said they've been working on it a while so hopefully for all of them the background checks have been done lol I know next to nothing about Teri but those two main At The Drive In/The Mars Volta guys seem like huge flakes. I could see Buzz giving an opinion on something Omar doesn't like and he immediately quitting refusing to ever speak to Buzz again or something like that.

I'm into it.

It would be cool to see this presented as a Melvins release ("woah Teri and Omar are IN melvins") but new moniker suggests a more equal share of songwriting duties.

Teri to handle bass/low end (keys) if this ever goes live?

I cannot ever imagine a Melvins/Volta Tour.

Post by: Captain CoryCory on October 05, 2016, 10:32:16 AM
After reading Ian's post the project doesn't seem all that shocking but a bit sugarcoated to make it seem like a huge deal. Teri and Omar have had a good working relationship for nearly ten years and there's also the Ipecac connection all four musicians share now. Maybe John Frusciante for a guest spot?  :lol:

I'm sure this album will be great but I'm curious to see what follows of it in the next few years. I'm sure a tour or two will be a given next year in support of the record but then where does it go from there? A One-off like any Les Claypool side project or does all four parties keep it going strong for the years to come?

In closing there's a few musicians who would have been legit shocking to casual and die-hard fans, like Claypool or that Grohl guy who's also in a bunch of bands.

I know what you mean and im coming around more to that idea myself based on what i think this record could turn out to be like. However im curious how do you (or others) feel about the Paul Leary songs on Hold It In or most of the tracks on The Crybaby in terms of not being (in the true sense) Melvins songs? Although it pains me to say this, i would say Crystal Fairy as a project probably wouldn't be out of place within the Melvins discography on the basis of those sort of more tenuous records or songs they have put out in the past with other musicians involved.
hold it in and crybaby are great...
i think i just can kind of relate more to those musicians that were involved in these collaborations than butcherettes or mars volta / at the drive in.
plus if it does not say melvins on it i don't "have to" collect it, which is good for my wallet  :wink:

This has been a long time coming for me. Been 16 years since the track with Bliss Blood. In the meantime, they've had 2 albums where they let weirdos jack their sound for the entire record (POTRE, Hold It In). Time for a whole album of female vox. Or maybe they switch it around, I don't know.
There's been some online articles with some interview type snippets floating around, but damn if no one will share them with a brutha.  :P

I watched that Omar music video that had Buzz, john Frusciante, and the gender bender punching him in the face, and my first thought was "hey, welcome to six degrees of Mike Patton and Anthony Kiedis collaborations."

I saw the Mars Volta a decade or so ago and it bored me to tears. My friends that I grew up with that were into At the Drive In were the same people that thought Californication was the best album of all time. (Needless to say, as we've grown up, I hate these people now. Who woulda thunk that they would have become judgemental tasteless assholes?)

That said, I like this song. Teri's vocals are superb. Still, I can't help but feel reluctant. And I'm really curious about Omar's random relationship with all things Ipecac.

Is she that petite? Or is she standing on her knees? Anyways, I like her vocal on what is a typical Melvins sound, riff- and drumwise. Never liked what I`ve heard with Bucherettes, but here Teri deliver to grade A. If a tour is coming up, I expect it to be Crystal Fairy on one set and Melvins for themselves, in the same gig.

Really dig the "Drugs on the Bus" song. I cannot help but hear PJ Harvey when I hear Teri. Not a bad thing at all as I love PJ. I guess that I also love Teri.

Could you say perhaps, that Teri is the mexican PJ?  :wink:

There's a local shop with a ton of used PJ Harvey singles. I'm itching to snag them all.

I really didn't know what to expect from the artwork, but i certainly didn't expect that cover! Teri the cover star as it were!! I wonder if Mackie worked on it or composed it at all? Can't wait to hear the full record. Goodness Teri is so beautiful! Surprising that the album is released on the 24th - 3 days after the tour starts!

Also i see by the track times there on iTunes that this record is about 40 minutes in length. All pretty short tunes.

Most albums are published and ready to sell beforehand so I'm sure they'll have at the very least CDs at the shows.

Still I'd like to be able to see one of those shows though I wouldn't be surprised at all if a full tour followed in the forthcoming months.

Altough this Crystal Fairy record only has 2 songs, it is a 12'' record. The Clown Tributes were 7'' so it makes sense this one is more expensive.

It might not have been public knowledge they were married but it was public knowledge they were in a relationship so I doubt that would make much difference.

Haha. Although not the greatest thing in the world, i kinda like what i've heard so far. I think the thing with these kind of deals is that when i hear cool Buzz riffs in the songs, part of me wishes they were in used in future Melvins songs and not "thrown away" as it were on a side project.


it's not bad indeed...Btw,speaking of a possible break up maybe we found the reason why Dale destroyed his kit

I'll be interested to hear what fans who already like Teri's other acts think about this. So far i've only listened through the record once but it didn't really strike me too much. Maybe even a slight nonplussed reaction on my part. But then 9 times out of 10 i guess that's my usual response to a new Melvins record. Not that this is a Melvins record of course. I read a little comment someone else said who had heard the record a few days ago and they said it gets bad after the first 6 songs. I wouldn't go that far but i did feel my interest drop around that point. Still, i'll be listening more this next few days! I'll probably love it by this time next week.

'Moth Tongue' is such a Melvins sounding song. 'Secret Agent Rat' too. Quite a bit of Buzzo riffage. It's always interesting, but at the same time in a way unfortunate to listen to a project such as this and unpick who did what. It's kind of unavoidable to do so though.

"I think having Terri as the singer made it where we wanted to do a new band. We wanted to have something new and have her be the frontperson. I guess that’s why. It is certainly different enough. It has our sound, but it also has her thing. She’s all over it and she wrote all the lyrics." - Dale.


I know the band see this as a different entity but i have to say i still think of it as a "Melvins album". I think even what Dale mentions above doesn't rule it out. I mean when you think of The Crybaby, Chicken Switch, Hold It In or even Everybody Loves Sausages those records all in one way or another blur the lines that Dale outlines above there.

Oh it does for me. Very much so. Some songs or moments don't really come across as a Melvins track, 'Under Trouble' for example, but then lately Melvins albums have had a few surprise odd songs on there. So that just fits into that for me.

BTW, i have to say that i think 'Posesion' is the worst song on here and it's a cover!

been listening to this a couple of times. it grew up a little bit after second listen. some good moments by Buzz and Dale. still think there's too much Teri in the mix, considering also she doesn't stop a moment singing. not the best thing i heard involving Buzz and Dale but a decent straight rock album and i can see them being excited collaborating with a true frontwoman
looking forward to new Melvins material...

I think i'd go with an 8/10. Im tempted to say it's better than Basses Loaded, certainly in terms of consistency anyway but perhaps overall with all things considered it's about the same. It's something of a "grower" this album, but i still think Under Trouble, Posesion and Sweet Self are the lesser points on the record. Not bad but just not so great to me. Does anyone else cringe at that bit in the title track where Teri says "Hey yo, Crystal do you want a cigarette?". ?? That little bit irritates me so much. Perhaps in the way she says it too.

It's the most 90s thing about this record, honestly. Reminded me of Pixies, Lydia Lunch and Sleater-Kinney.

Overall it's a 7/10 record for me. Way too arty to be grunge but it's not bad even if some of the songs are as straightforward alternative rock as it gets. Honestly, it's a great vocal/lyric clinic for Teri with her at times overshadowing the backing players through Dale kills it on Crystal Fairy and a few others and of course Buzz is a riff factory. Omar as a bassist is fine but we all know his forte is his guitar and a thousand pedals. Some of the songs don't do much for me either.

I like it but I'm not sure if I'll be revisiting this album a lot and I got a sinking feeling this may be the only album we get of this group. I told a friend Omar was playing bass on it and he already doesn't want to hear it (He's a fickle individual in terms of music and a diehard Volta fan).

Highlights? Chiseler, Crystal Fairy, Under Trouble, Bent Teeth, Posesion

One thing i really like about this record is that it DOESN'T have any silly, embarrassing, kitsch songs like Melvins usually like including into recent releases. No Buzz!! I don't care how much you try to make me like them i wont!!!


What's up with this album cover?
That's obviously just a sleeve (perhaps a carboard one) that goes over the other cover. Im sure the "proper" cover art is intact beneath.

Come on Ian, you know I'm chilean... With that being said, her spanish reminds me a lot of Cedric's, a very poor one (obviously on purpose) with tons of grammatical errors and misspellings and most of the time what they say simply makes no sense... unless you take the lyrics as pure poetry. If I put a "..." it's because I don't understand what she's saying.


Secret Agent Rat
Congelaron con la arma del insulto de mi mar (it could be "mal", I'm not sure)
Centigrados de un acento
Lleva meses sin volar

Entre huecos de suspiro
No cabe el aire en mi mente
Estamos lleno de olvidos
Con la lava tu miseria (well, it sounds like she were saying lava)

No existe
El hacer (it could also be "El láser" but I don't think so)
Él come
Es su instinto
El pensar
No viene del hombre

Congelaron con la arma del insulto de mi mar (it could be "mal", I'm not sure)
Centigrados de un acento
Lleva meses sin volar

Entre huecos de suspiro
No cabe el aire en mi mente
Estamos lleno de olvidos
Con la lava tu miseria (well, it sounds like she were saying lava)

Sí se puede
En crecer (I'm not so sure about this part)
Ignorancia es la muerte
Ilumíname con el mundo de luz

Estuvieron con el tiempo
Un milagro celestial
Sin darse cuenta uno muere
En el llanto ooohhh

En este día me he dado cuenta
Que todos somos máquinas
No existe el hombre, él se ha ido
Con el agua y tu ... (sorry, I don't understand the last part)

En este lugar tan oscuro
Solo hay un Dios
Que nos pide, que nos pide
Que usemos nuestros poderes
Nuestros poderes
Nuestras alimentaciones

Not quite on this occasion but at the same time don't underestimate the effect something perceived as bad can have on a record. Freak Puke for instance. A fine Melvins album but Tommy Goes Berserk absolutely sucks. Or at least the first 3 minutes of it do. That easily ruins the record for me. I still enjoy Freak Puke of course but i always stop it after Let Me Roll It. Thank god it's the last track is all i can say.

Thanks for taking time to write out the lyrics! It's funny that you say Cedric and Teri both sing Spanish poorly. To my, untrained ear it sounded authentic. Ha.

I changed a few things:

Frozen with the weapon of the insult of my sea
Centigrades of an accent
It has been months without flying

Between holes of sigh
The air does not fit in my mind
We are full of forgetfulness
Wash away your misery

Does not exist
To do
He eats
It's his instinct
To think
It does not come from the man

Frozen with the weapon of the insult of my sea
Centigrades of an accent
It has been months without flying

Between holes of sigh
The air does not fit in my mind
We are full of forgetfulness
Wash away your misery

Yes you can
To grow
Ignorance is death
Enlighten me with the world of light

They were over time
A heavenly miracle
Without realizing it one dies
In crying ooohhh

On this day I realized
That we are all machines

Here's my review. Honestly, the more I listen to it, the more I like it. though, with the tour cancellation, I wonder if this project will be a non-starter. Were there any live Crystal fairy shows at all? Was anyone there?

No shows took place, but it was only a 5 date west coast mini tour. The Melvins don't tour in the dead of winter, but the rest of the year is open (after the Redd Kross/ LB/ATDI stuff this spring).

I think being a Melvins fan doesn't really help going into this album.
And by that I don't mean that the Melvins set an unreachable bar, because I did try and keep an open mind and listen to this as a new band. But what does happen to Melvins fans is that you get wind of Buzz talking about the project. Saying how great it is, how easy the sessions were and how quickly everything came together. Those would be interesting points if this music weren't so aggressively mediocre. And to truly engage with them as a new band, it's sounds too much like recent Melvins. Hell, it's even partly recorded by Toshi. It's my own fault that I read and watch interviews but for people that constantly talk about how ahead of the curve and weird they are, this is awfully derivative and not at all challenging. Teri seems to be perfectly content sounding like a second rate PJ Harvey and Omar's nondescript bass lines might as well have been overdubbed by Dale. Not that it matters, but even the name stinks.

Now some of you might scoff and call me a hater which is fine. But this is a forum, it's not like I'm waiting outside the venue after a show to tell them what I think about their work. Some of my lifelong heroes have dropped stinkers and I still love them all the same.

The chick is crazy fun to watch and I imagine the songs have more POP live.

In a way, no. No Country, no experimental Patton/Yow stuff, no Nirvana cover, no long twisty songs that aren't quite Roman Dog Bird/Hung Bunny type stuff. The music is pretty much Melvins. The vocals aren't.

Post by: sadcorps on March 01, 2017, 02:26:40 PM
I think this is less a Melvins album (Buzz write 99% of that material and sings all over it) whereas this is more a Crystal Fairys album (multiple writers, different singer, and a different sound).

But then, I also think Hold It In is less of a Melvins album and more of a Melvins / Butthole Surfers album.

It is sooooo confusing anymore! hahahhaa!!!

Anyway - I think this album straight up rocks. And Teri seems a LOT less PJ than in the Le Butercherette songs that I have heard. Still some PJ in there but it doesn't feel like a rip off.

Hmm im not sure myself. I think of course it depends on the type of music people record i guess. I have no experience of it myself but i think i do tend to agree with Buzz here that keeping things quick and to the point keeps it fresh and vital. I think you can actually hear that in a song or an album. When alternatively sometimes things can easily get bogged down over thinking things or adding layers. But yes i agree that if it's a great musician they probably bypass a lot of that to an extent.

Aaaaah... but if I may counter- Pigs of the Roman Empire was a double and I think it definitely NEEDED to be a double Lp. a single disc just wouldn't have made the same impact and artistic statement.

POTRE was a double album?? I suppose that was the case in the sense of vinyl, but i took it Buzz meant it was going to be a double CD release. Or let's put it this way - about 80+ minutes of music in total. A "double album" like The Wall is or such.

On topic of Crystal Fairy after one week of hearing: I like it a lot. Moth Tongue is my fave tune currently.

 I think some of you are too hypercritical of this project. Of course it's going to sound a little more conventional than a standard Melvins album, the music was made to fit Teri's style. It's not reinventing the wheel, it's rock 'n' roll bottom line. The singing is great, the drummer kills, the riffs are awesome, and the bass player holds it down well. 8) Bottom line, I don't understand how you could not love this album if you're a Melvins and/or Le Butcherettes fan.

I'm envisioning some acoustic numbers, some noise songs, some thrash, some lumbering, heavy stuff, some electronic, etc. WIth Buzz's deep love for classic rock and what a double album stands for in that genre, it will likely include all the things that they've tried in the past, rolled into one album. In my opinion, Stag did a great job of blending all those styles together. That will be a tough one to top.

A fine Melvins album but Tommy Goes Berserk absolutely sucks.

I like this song a lot. The first 3 minutes remind me of something you would hear on the Bootlicker. This is one of the few songs in the last 10 years, where the Melvins have actually tried some new sounds. The next six minutes are standard fare. Buzz noodling, etc. Then we have some ambient soundscapes and some chopped up vocals which have been appearing a lot lately at the end of tracks.

Hey! To each their own. I think if you really like what the Melvins do, you would be able to appreciate Tommy Goes Berserk, I've certainly heard worse Melvins songs.

I find a lot of the latest Melvins output to be along similarly generic lines, to be honest.

What do you mean Internet argument thing? Did you think my post was intended as some kind of bait? Don't have time for silly internet shit. Thanks again. Oh yeah, and by the way, you are WRONG that all of those albums are better than Crystal Fairy. So there is that.

Pissed Jeans have put some good stuff out in the past decade.  Just sayin. It's really all subjective and silly to get bent out of shape over.

Agree on both points. I wanted to include Pissed Jeans, but I figured that might prompt someone to shriek "THEY'RE NOISE-PUNK, GET IT RIGHT LOL"

Oh and speaking of Pissed Jeans, the new album is better than Crystal Fairy. Maybe.

The band name Pissed Jeans is about 1,000 times better than Crystal Fairy. I now have high hopes!

Gotta check them out. I do like myself some noise-punk.

Yeah, it is one of their poppier songs which is probably why I like it so much.  They write some of the best lyrics ever...All about modern life crises.

Best Hard Rock album in a decade.
False.

always a ray of sunshine, this guy

I just want him to enlighten me. Seriously, if there is a better Hard Rock Album that has come out in the last decade - I wanna know!!!!!
Even if we rule out all the albums by melvins, Big Business and bands of that are closer to "metal," and not "hard rock" ...

Sol Invictus
...Like Clockwork
Several albums by Ty Segall
Several albums by Tomahawk
Them Crooked Vultures
Icky Thump
The first two Red Fang albums
Post Pop Depression

This is not a complete list, of course, just stuff that happens to be on my music player or that I could think of off the top of my head. Another thing they have in common? They're all better than Crystal Fairy.

Now please do the Internet argument thing and carefully refute each and every one of these, or at least explain in great detail why one or more of these is subgenre-X and not "hard rock."

...Like Crockwork is not hard rock- shitty QOTSA fay period BS

Seems like this new project has gone under the radar for the record store and chains here in Norway, no one had ever heard of Crystal Fairy. Melvins all know about, but they didn`t know this was the bands new project, so I had no luck on my purchase hunt saturday. So now I will have to use Amazon.

Hard rock has always been the most lame labels on music ever. Makes you think about Krokus, Def Leppard, Ratt etc, classic hard rock from the eighties.

No, hard rock is the music that wasn't hard enough to be called metal in the eighties. But it was fun, always with a smile.

I will take that - at this point we are just splitting hairs. I think of Hard Rock and Glam Rock as two separate genres, both related to Metal but neither are hard enough to be metal.

I wouldn't call Crystal Fairy a Metal album.

I agree with all that those glam rock bands were hard rock back then but now I would consider them glam rock/hair metal and Crystal Fairy is a definite hard rock album, straight ahead rock is shit like Nickelback and whatever and CF are heavier than that but certainly not metal.

This is all on my mind at the moment because my younger brother has moved house and dumped all his CD's in my mother's garage and wants to sell them all for $1 each and going through them tonight it's full of stuff like Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, Judas Priest, Tim Ripper Owens every bloody album Devin Townsend has ever released Meshuggah too. It's depressing but at least he grew out of all the nu-metal stuff like Korn & Limp Bizkit.

Only one Melvins album in there and a best of album at that.

When this album was released i read a comment on The Mars Volta forum from someone who said 6 months down the line this record would be forgotten. At the time i didn't agree but now upon reflection that summation seems to be exactly the case. I wouldn't like to place a bet upon the possibility of a future Crystal Fairy show or tour. It does seem like this is over before it even got started.

Is it just me or Buzz is not happy to get questions about CF in interviews? i noticed that many times in recent interviews.i think a hard working,super professional guy like Buzz is still pissed to have his schedule ruined. i suspect Crystal Fairy is a dead project

It is a GREAT record!!  Teri's vocals sync perfectly with the band and she's really capable of delivering a wide range of vocal styles.  I've said it before but I never knew she was a 1974 Geddy Lee impersonator  :-k

Omar is no slouch either...sounds great with the fellas!  I really want to see them live, hope it still happens...

Took me a while to listen to it multiple times as I got it on vinyl, spun it once and then spent the next couple of weeks trying to get a decent sounding digital copy.  The mp3 that was delivered with the vinyl was unlistenable, something really off in the high range... finally got a flac copy which sounded better.

 Yeah, I would suspect he's probably a little pissed it didn't happen. Apparently Buzz wanted to put a week or two into rehearsing for a tour which totally makes sense, and Omar wanted none of that. Must have got in the way of ATDI tour preparations or something on his end. I'd guess as long as Teri's married to him, things will be at a standstill, which is really too bad. Omar is totally replaceable in CF. Get Dunn, Rutmanis, Pinkus or whoever from Melvins side, and the band would be even better.

Hell, it's even partly recorded by Toshi

you said partly? was just trying to give a second possibility to this album and one of my thoughts was it seems to have a better production than Melvins recent stuff (AWWLAD and possibly the Dale solo album too). especially the guitar. on a related note,  this album is better than what i thought
