Mp3 of the Week: A.K.A.C.O.D.

DOWNLOAD: A.K.A.C.O.D., "Spanish Fly" [mp3]

The comparisons of A.K.A.C.O.D with Morphine are obvious: the "low rock" groove of sax, slide bass, and drums, the presence of Morphine saxman Dana Colley as player, producer, and songwriter. But that would discount singer/bassist Monique Ortiz's own distinctive songwriting chops, macho-woman deep alto vocals, and frank sexuality. With Larry Dersch on drums, A.K.A.C.O.D. ("also known as Colley/Ortiz/Dersch") are working their new Happiness, which mixes Morphine sexbeat and Sabbathy distorted stomps. "Spanish Fly" snaps heads with its insinuating bari-bass-tubs groove and out-of-the-gate rhyme on the word "masturbate." Grab the mp3 above, then catch the band November 24 at Atwood's; or December 6 at Church.
