MP3 of the Week: Ketman

DOWNLOAD: Ketman, "Chapter Four" (mp3)
WATCH: Ketman at YouTube

About this time last year, we brought you a track from Ketman’s EP Esperanto. They’ve since recorded a full-length (finally), but then they wrote so many new songs that they’ve whipped out a new EP and are releasing it in advance of the album. Who cares if it’s ass-backwards when it rocks like a tropical storm? In this "chapter," guitarist Eric Penna and bassist Joe Marrett (also of Hallelujah the Hills, and Silver Jew David Berman’s brother-in-law) tag-team on a shoutfest that sounds something like a couple of David Yows goading Slayer into a cover of the original MTV theme. And at that, they’re only about half as tufff as their rad girl drummer, Mora Precarious. Our bad for not posting this before their record-release party on Thursday, but we hear it was a ridiculously good time without us. They're now on their way along a cross-country tour, but they'll be back August 6 at the Middle East for an absurdly ridonculous show with They Shoot Horses Don't They? and the almighty Big Bear. You've been warned.
