Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne has premiered a new solo acoustic track entitled “Dark Brown Teeth” over at Rolling Stone. The song, while acoustic, retains that sludgy Melvins’ tinge that we have all come to admire. The song will appear on a limited edition 10″ entitled This Machine Kills Artists that will be released on Amphetamine Reptile and sold primarily on Buzz’s upcoming solo tour. The 10″ will include four original songs, including “Dark Brown Teeth”, as well as acoustic renditions of Melvins tracks “Revolve” and “Let God Be Your Gardener”. Those originals are expected to be seen again on Buzz’s 17 track full length solo album, which is being eyed for a June release through Ipecac. Head over to Rolling Stone now to check the track out. Tour dates can be found after the break.
Buzz also stated that a new Melvins album is in the works as well. Does he ever take a break? Obviously not, and that’s a good thing for us.
The Melvins’ own Buzz Osborne has announced his very first solo acoustic tour that will commence in late February and extend through March. You can find the touring schedule after the break. I’m not sure what to expect, but I am definitely going. Check it out.
Above a still from Deftones classic music video for their song “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)” from their 1997 album Around the Fur. Director Frank Ockenfels also made a video for the acoustic rendition of the track that has yet to surface, until now! Ockenfels took to the web uploaded the previously unreleased video. You can view the rare clip below as well as the original. I mean, who doesn’t want to watch Chino Moreno float under a bridge?

You may remember a few months ago that I posted a video showing Chelsea Wolfe performing “Flatlands” from her upcoming acoustic record, Unknown Rooms (October 16th). Well now you can stream the extremely gorgeous and melancholic studio version of the track below. I am extremely excited to hear the record in full but I am also afraid that it will make me cry. Forget I said that. Check out the song and get the tissues ready.
The haunting songstress Chelsea Wolfe has released a brand new track from her upcoming acoustic album, Unknown Rooms, which is due out on October 16th. “Appalachia” is a heart wrenching, western ballad that presents itself with sultry folksy swagger. She has yet to disappoint me and I can’t wait to get my hands on this record. Check out the track below!
Chelsea Wolfe will release a record comprised of all acoustic numbers on October 16th via Sargent House. Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs will sport the gorgeous and bluesy sounding “The Way We Used To”, which can be streamed below. This woman has not disappointed me yet and I am confident that this record will be a damn good listen. Listen to the track below!
