DAN MELCHIOR UND DAS MENACE: Christmas for the Crows: LP

A bit enigmatic. Quiet and subdued music where even the spaces in between are part of the overall sound. Too smart to be garage rock, though it would be quick and easy to paint this with that brush, but… I imagine if Billy Childish had fronted Thee Homosexuals, it would have sounded something like this. At the core is an Americana sound, but off that are strains of post punk, rock, and whatever else. Really, this is not music easily described, which is a great thing. Just listen to this and sort it out for yourself.
