BUCK GOOTER: Witch Molecules: LP

May 08, 2013

Was a bit apprehensive ‘cause a handle like “Buck Gooter” conjures images of nouveau alt-country hell. What’s here, though, is minimalist skronkin’ wrenched outta guitars, drum machines, and other devices that create sound. While much here tends to bleed together, there are some interesting moments and sounds, like “Butterfly Collector,” which is almost mesmerizing in its repetitiveness. This ain’t for all tastes, but not a wasted effort or listen by any stretch.
