Obits: If You’re Not Listening, You Should Be.

Obits is the latest in a long series of great projects from Rick Froberg of Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes.  These are slow murder ballad surf blues with untraceable analog parts.  It’s like Radio Birdman slowed through those angular Holtzman forcefields in David Lynch’s Dune.  It’s like dread coming on inexorable, blood dry by the time it hits the tracks.
