Buzz Osborne, the Melvins frontman for 30 years, will release his first ever solo album, "This Machine Kills Artists," on June 3rd, via Ipeac Recordings.
The album is all-acoustic. "I have no interest in sounding like a crappy version of James Taylor or a half-a-sed version of Woody Guthrie," Buzz said in a press release, continuing, "which is what happens when almost every rock and roller straps on an acoustic guitar. No thanks ... 'This Machine Kills Artists' is a different kind of animal."
Here's the opening track, brooding acoustic number called "Dark Brown Teeth." Listen below.
