Melvins – A Walk With Love and Death

Monday 10th, July 2017 / 17:49

 

By Gareth Watkins

Ipecac Recordings

This is a double album. Or it isn’t. But it might be. Or it’s a Melvins album, their twenty-fifth, that is packaged with their twenth-sixth recording, the soundtrack for the film A Walk With Love & Death. They are not a band that makes it easy for you.

Their music, however, goes down smooth: although they, literally, have no peers in the avant-sludge-americana-punk genre there is something comfortingly American in their reverb-drenched solos and guitar tones so clear that they could be pianos. The riffs are huge, particularly on early track Euthanasia, and there’s darkness there, but it’s accessible. AM rock-radio accessible at times- until the second half of the album swings into view and it’s all howling electronics and kitschy samples, all of which is unbearably annoying and nowhere near what noise music can be. So, not so much a double album as a very decent Melvins release that comes with a coffee coaster that looks an awful lot like a CD.
