The post King Buzzo Shares New Song “Delayed Clarity”: Stream appeared first on Consequence of Sound.
The new record sees Buzzo in collaboration with longtime friend and Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn. Although patently King Buzzo in their black humor and general irreverence, the three singles we’ve heard from the new album — including “Science in Modern America” and “I’m Glad I Could Help Out” — are far removed from the crushing sludge metal of the Melvins.
Instead, the aforementioned tracks and new acoustic-based single “Delayed Clarity” are steeped in an avant-folk that recalls Tom Waits’ Rain Dogs with its left-field instrumentation and eclecticism. Buzzo and Dunn pull from their bag of sonic tricks, and the results veer delightfully eschew.
“Gift of Sacrifice was a stone groove to record,” Buzzo said in an earlier press statement announcing the album. Initially, the duo were set to tour in May in support of the album’s release. The tour was then called off and the release date pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since then Buzzo has let the music speak for itself, offering few remarks on the upcoming LP. However, when he’s finally able to tour the new material, he’s confident the results will be satisfactory.
