Coming soon to menace God-fearing neighborhoods near you, Skunkmello’s stinky new slice of plastic, Discount Liquors, is the sonic stew certain to saturate your otherwise arid evening with some serious turbulence and a fully stocked bar for some real cool times.
This unruly group of bootlegged spirits shake up to create a high-test cocktail of garage-folk, fuzz country, sewer-blues and red-eyed rock and roll, all duct-taped together with lean determination and white-knuckled grit to flaunt the harsh realities and brutal plotlines of the industrial grind and defy the high costs of low living. Here the band has managed to distill in acetate form the coordinated sounds of the real-life chaos that inspires them, and set it all to the hard-grooving rhythms of late-nights as they wash out into early mornings. As a result, these new songs are not simply the inebriated fairy-tales of slurred speakers, but real and rowdy data-points burnt across the cities and the interstates of asphalt Americana.
A slab of science for the current times and throwback to the faded days of jam-econo gone by – there are always deals to be had down at the discount. But make no mistake about it: this record is intended to be played over loud speakers at high volumes at indecent hours of the night. Not from concentrate and not for the faint of heart.
General Info: Skunkmello has established itself as a top-tier fixture of the NYC rock-and-roll scene and champions a hard-earned reputation as a wild and unruly national touring act. They are routine outlaws at festivals such as SXSW, CMJ, Musikfest and the Outlaw Roadshow and have opened for the likes of ZZ Top, the Counting Crows, Phillip Sayce, and Houndmouth.
