Meat Puppets+Retribution Gospel Choir
The band's second album since bassist Cris Kirkwood's return to the fold, Sewn Together finds the Meat Puppets in bright-and-strummy psych-country mode, with crisp harmonies and jangle-riffic guitar lines aplenty. Not much of the old lake-of-fire voodoo, alas, but tunes are mostly strong enough to distract you from wha's missing. Retribution Gospel Choir is Low frontman Alan Sparhaw's down-and-dirty garage rock trio, and there's a little bit of lake-of-fire voodoo here.
