I wondered for a moment what was happening in 'With Teeth' but it came together eventually. Equally i wonder if Ben knows Buzz has already done acoustic renditions of Melvins tunes. It was interesting to be able to compare his and Buzzo's acoustic 'Boris'.

These are fantastic! The interpretations pay obvious homage ... yet stray and adventure far enough outside the fence posts to bring new life and horizon to these "classics". Really dig where Ben's taken these. The dust caked, sun burned, psych raga Americana vibe of Six Organs really befits deconstructing the moods of these songs. Also really love the words Ben penned to introduce, explain, and contextualize this project ... this is what tipping your hat looks like ... Bravo!

Yeah I enjoyed this. "With Teeth" started off a little reminding me of "Tipping the Lion." I like how he captured that sort of husky menace of "Night Goat" in a way that sounds still appropriate for an acoustic guitar and voice.
