Yeah this was an enjoyable first listen. 

The things that stood out the most to me were the sharing around of vocals and harmonies which worked really well and the sludgy parts having more hooks in them so they don't get so bogged down.

A collection of dead rat photos? Rats that his trusty dog trapped?

Cancelled rats?

I also noticed that no songs from the Lord of the Flies are present. That must be a stand-alone EP possibly

Never Say You're Sorry ?

no apology required.....   :D

I remember when you used to be able to download these tracks as .WAV files directly from the Bob's Garage website!
Must have been 2002/3 ?

Honestly I wish they would use some different artists for a change.

The Haze stuff in particular is not my fave...

I remember seeing these in a sneaker store in Paris in about 2007.

Of course they didn't have my size but it was still cool to see.

Did anyone happen to save/record the stream please?

I'm guessing it won't be replayed.

First helmet release I’ve been excited about for quite some time!

Bandcamp shipping $7
Blixt shipping $18 😐

Be glad you're not in Australia then....

Bandcamp shipping $48
Blixt shipping $48
Ipecac (Shopify) shipping $67

Seeing as this doesn't look like a limited edition I'll probably just wait and get it locally

Melvins will reinterpret their own catalog and showcase some new covers on the grunge giant’s massive new Five Legged Dog, a 36-track LP that doubles as the group’s first-ever acoustic album.

“I knew I wanted to do something ridiculously big. Thirty-six songs reimagined by us acoustically is certainly ridiculous but it works! The magic of the songs is still there regardless of it being acoustic,” Buzz Osbourne said in a statement of the pandemic-recorded album.

“Since we weren’t touring we had the time to do something of this size. I’m very excited about this record. Dale [Crover] and Steven [McDonald] did a fantastic job on this. I think it’s a very special record. I can’t think of anyone else who’s done something like this.”

Five Legged Dog boasts acoustic takes on tracks from throughout the Melvins’ enormous discography — from 1987’s Gluey Porch Treatments to 2017’s A Walk With Love & Death — as well as cuts from Crover’s solo album, non-LP songs, and covers both previously recorded and attempted for the first time, like the Rolling Stones’ “Sway,” Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talking” (sung here by Butthole Surfers’ Jeff Pinkus), and Brainiac’s “Flypaper.”

Ahead of Five Legged Dog’s October 15th release via Ipecac Recordings, Melvins have shared their new rendition of “Night Goat,” a standout from their 1993 LP Houdini; the acoustic version strips off the original song’s fuzz and sludge while still capturing its grungy intensity.

Crover added in a statement: “They said it couldn’t be done! Actually, they didn’t say that, but the facts remain. We’ve taken some 30-plus songs that span our entire career and given them the acoustic treatment. There are also some fun cover songs, of course. We’ve covered songs by the Turtles and Brainiac!  I think people will be surprised that we can do an acoustic version of a song like ‘Night Goat’ without losing any of the heaviness. We also really worked hard on vocal arrangements. People are going to freak out!”

Five Legged Dog will be available to preorder Thursday, July 22nd in a variety of formats, including digitally and two-CD (both out October 15th) and four-LP colored vinyl that will arrive on January 28th.

Nice! Dean is a huge fan of music and a very good interviewer. He's done some real good ones. Worth a listen. Worth going over his old episodes for artists/bands you like.

Yes, he's definitely enthusiastic!
