OTD exclusive: The Lot Six


Two years in the making, the Lot Six’s new vicious and ambitious 12-inch Get Baked on Youth Kulture (Plastic) is finally ready for your turntable. When we dropped a needle on the 120-gram red vinyl, sat back, and took in the tunes — high-octane riff rock, piano-driven roots music, circus-organ-cum-feedback noise collages — our little minds were just about blown. Unfortunately, you can’t download vinyl, but here's the album’s bloozy opener in exclusive pre-wax-pressed digital form. (Surgeon General's warning: listening to this record will make you take drugs.) Buy the record when the Lot Six throws down record-release style this Saturday, March 18, upstairs at the Middle East, 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge. 


DOWNLOAD: The Lot Six, "Strange Pains" (mp3)


P.S.: now that youtube is all the rage, some of our favorite "rock" bands are embracing the throwback -- see: low-fi flash movies -- as their online presentation of choice. Best example to hit our myspace inbox yet: Boston's own Kayo Dot, best known for making orchestral avant-metal maelstroms for John Zorn's label, among others, here getting in on the snap craze (okay, it's actually clappy, but so minimal!) with a gentle ode to cats. Complete with adorable cat-picture slideshow!
