Mp3 exclusive: Ketman

Fresh off a triumphant week-and-a-half tour of the West Coast, Allston art-punk power trio KETMAN are at Great Scott tomorrow night (Thursday, June 15) to celebrate the release of their new limited-run Esperanto EP, which they recorded on four-track cassette in their basement. In the DIY spirit of the recording, the album comes on spray-painted mini CDs stuffed in super-nifty homemade packaging. The music itself is a tasty guitar-driven goulash of Jimi-like wah-wah and whammy-bar voodoo, In Utero–inspired guitar noise, atonal shouts, overdriven bass, psychotic percussion outbursts, and -- way back, way back -- a hint of krautrock pulse. The track we’ve been digging most, "Hide Out from the Sun," is an uncharacteristically melodic stomper cut with snatches of swamp-rock sludge. Use it to get your ass off the couch and down to Allston tonight for their gig with Shore Leave, Appomattox (speaking of which: dude, how fucking good are those dudes?!) and Wind Behind the Walll | 1222 Comm Ave, Allston | 617.734.4502. [DETAILS]
