Musk

Oakland's MUSK are releasing their debut self-titled LP next week (10/14) via Holy Mountain Records, which was recorded with Thee Oh Sees collaborator Chris Woodhouse (who's also produced multiple Ty Segall albums and other cool stuff). Teaming up with someone like Woodhouse is a great fit for MUSK, because like Ty and Thee Oh Sees, this is dirty garage rock but with just the right amount of clarity. MUSK make dark, devilish sounding stuff pulling from blues, psychedelia and hellish punk. If you can picture The Stooges' Fun House but swampier and on even more drugs, you might get an idea.

The full stream premieres in this post, so you can check it out for yourself ahead of the release date, below...
