New Music Review: Primus…Around Of Applause For Its Tragic New Track

The round of applause and cheers sampled in before the final verse on Primus’ latest shrapnel spewing Funk bomb, “Tragedy’s A’Comin,” is well deserved as this teaser for Les Claypool and company’s seventh full-length record, Green Naugahyde, is the outfit’s best work since “Winona’s Big Brown Beaver” off Tales From The Punchbowl.

“She stands before us, a Bible in her grasp,” growls Claypool over his signature Funk-Metal bass lines like some ember licked backwoods narrator recanting a horrifying southern gothic to a collection of fearful children.  “When she opens up her mouth, you can hear her reached rasp/Like a bucket of barnacles, she’s abrasive to the skin/Like the ignorant masses, that hope someday she’ll win.”

Green Naugahyde is Primus’ first album in eight years, spelling the end of the group’s hiatus when it hits shelves on September 13th.  Primus will tour on this record but does not plan to stop in New Jersey…however the group will perform in New York City at Roseland Ballroom on Spetmber 30th as well as in Philadelphia on October 1st at the Tower Theatre.  For tickets head here, for a free download look below:
