Dwarr “Starting Over”

(Drag City) It’s easier to talk about what this bizarre archival reissue is not. It’s anti-psyche, because despite using the same tools – guitar exploration, weirdness – this paints with black and white splotches rather than kaleidoscopic colors. This is also super sludgy non-metal (as it’s metal resemblance is only mentionable because of the killer metal cover art and the Sabbath weight and occasional Ozzy impersonation). Features the most disconcerting X-mas song ever (one that makes that grandma getting killed by reindeers song feel like “Carol of the Bells”). THIS RECORD IS AMAZING!!!
