Curt Kirkwood – Snow (2005)

This was my soundtrack to the summer of 2006. Curt Kirkwood is a member of the Meat Puppets, an Arizona band that put out a string of amazing psych-rock albums in the 80s and then had about seven and a half minutes of fame after making a guest appearance at Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance. This is his first and only solo outing so far, a fun little country/folk record. It’s a fairly stripped down and understated affair, dominated by acoustics guitars and Kirkwood’s trademark acid-fried poetry sung in his lazy drawl.
