Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers): il nuovo album

86

A quasi 30 anni dal debutto solista ‘The History of Dogs’ (1991), il genio di Paul Leary torna con ‘Born Stupid’ che sarà fuori il 12 febbraio via Shimmy Disc/Joyful Noise. “Much of the subversive creative spirit that fueled the Butthole Surfers’ best work can be found inside the grooves of Leary’s charmingly twisted new album. Musically, Born Stupid largely steps away from the atomic punk energy and fuzzed-out metal riffing that defined the Butthole Surfers’ sound. Instead, Leary has crafted an equally compelling soundscape filled with carnival sideshow calliopes, spaghetti western guitar motifs, and off-kilter German beer hall waltzes. But where the Butthole Surfers’ work was often squarely focused on the manipulation of sounds and textures, Born Stupid is heavily rooted in the craft of song, and the record’s finely structured musical landscapes work to support the stories being sung”.
