MELVINS’ “I’LL FINISH YOU OFF” IS NPR’S SONG OF THE DAY

NPR
Washington band the Melvins’ latest album The Bride Screamed Murder recently cracked Billboard’s Top 200, a first for this band that’s been putting out music for more than 26 years, and NPR has named their song “I’ll Finish You Off” the song of the day. NPR says “To this day, the band explores the pummeling low-end sounds that made its early work so gargantuan; from the cerebral sounds of Tool to the sonic abuse of Pig Destroyer, Melvins’ intense vibrations are still felt throughout the world of extreme music. ‘I’ll Finish You Off’ is loud, proud and backed with a psychedelic wall of guitar distortion, as the group continues a few tricks it’s been executing on its past few albums: recording with two drummers and spreading chorus effects across the vocals. Of course, the voluminous guitar chugs only lend more massiveness to the track, but an organ pops up as the instrumentation’s most surprising addition… More than a quarter of a century into the band’s career together, it’s inspiring to hear Melvins continue to deafen new generations of listeners.”

DON’T MISS ARTOPIA AND GEORGETOWN MUSIC FEST THIS WEEKEND

Seattle Times
This year Artopia and Georgetown Music Fest have teamed up for a free weekend of art and music. There will be carnival games, live music and libation, but being a Georgetown affair, there are also eclectic elements — a fire troupe, a peep show, acrobatics, hula hoop workshops, crazy hair stylings, a petting zoo and power-tool races. And don’t forget a screening of “Shakes the Clown” by “Police Academy” actor Bobcat Goldthwait, about an alcoholic clown. “What makes Artopia different is it covers a broad spectrum of arts, performance to sculpture to music,” said principal curator Gabe Stern. “It’s a great venue for local Seattle artists that don’t necessarily fit in a typical gallery setting.” There will be 150 artists, along with 60 bands on three stages for Artopia’s fourth year. Organizers hope that folks get an intimate look into a neighborhood they might have overlooked in the past. “I want people to be able to come down and have a really, really fun time and get to know the artists in the community of both Georgetown and Seattle,” said Joselynn Plank, an Artopia curator. “All the artists are basically working for nothing. … They are coming down for the fun of it, and showcase what they do to get their names out there.”
