Meat Puppets

Add Date: May 19

Artist: Meat Puppets

Album: Sewn Together

Label: Megaforce/Sony

Genre: Rock, post-hardcore, folk rock

Comments: Twenty-five years after recording one of the most significant and influential rock albums of the 1980s, Meat Puppets II, these veterans of the underground (and, for a brief period in the early '90s, mainstream) music scene are still alive and kicking--and still experimenting with their sound. Sewn Together is another solid effort from the Brothers Kirkwood, part rock, part post-hardcore, part grunge, and part country. Spin "Rotten Shame" and the title track, and also check out the folk-infused "Love Mountain" and "I'm Not You."
