GORT: Unravel: 7"

Sep 21, 2007

Two man band featuring a baritone guitar and drums. The title track is basically a stoner sludge number that is very Sabbath-like with a ton of bottom end and with very limited vocals: perfect background music if I still smoked a ton of weed. The flipside is a cover of Devo’s “Smart Patrol/ Mr. DNA.” I am a big fan of early Devo, but can a two-man band pull this off? Yes. I really dug their version. Not as sludgy as the title track, but the minimalist and raw approach to the songs came off very well.
