MP3 of the Day: O'Death

Categories: MP3 of the Day


New York's O'Death takes old time country and Appalachian mountain music, douses it with the whiskied passion of a great punk sing-along, and then sets the concoction aflame with a rousing chorus of howling men and frenzied strings.You've gotta love any band that adds Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas to its list of influences, and O'Death's charm lies in picking from specific cornerstones of music history (you know: the Pogues, the Pixies -- who they've covered, the Muppets) to craft their "gothic folk" sound. Check out O'Death's "Lowtide" below. If you like what you hear, the band plays Bottom of the Hill tomorrow (Friday, Nov. 21). -- Jennifer Maerz
