FITTED: First Fits: CD

Mike Watt, Bob Lee from the Freeks, Graham Lewis, and Matthew Sims lay down heavy grooves on this one. Certainly fans of Krautrock will take notice—some of the beats and (especially) fills on the album debut “Plug in the Jug” are verbatim lifts from Neu!’s “Hallogallo”—but beyond the genre homerism, it’s worth noting what a 2019 Watt had. It’s easy to take the man for granted because he’s always out there, touring and playing. Fitted is a great spot for him because he challenges what we know about his econo ’tude: stretching it out with spacey jams is a good look. More, please. –Michael T. Fournier (Org, orgmusic.com)
