• melvins A Walk With Love & Death (double CD, £15.75)

    label: ipecac

    Two separate 6-panel digipaks housed in a sturdy box.  The dual albums find the trio of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald showcasing two distinct sides to the band’s music: ‘Death’ is a "proper" Melvins release and ‘Love’ is the score to the Jesse Nieminen-directed, self-produced short also titled ‘A Walk With Love & Death’.  “This was a huge undertaking,” explained band ringleader Buzz Osborne. “All three things: the album, the soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us.”  Drummer Dale Crover added, “‘A Walk With Love & Death’ is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip! Not for the faint of heart. You’ll sleep with the lights on after listening.”  The albums, which include guests Joey Santiago (The Pixies), Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes / Crystal Fairy) and Anna Waronker (That Dog), were co-produced with engineer Toshi Kosai.
