The only consistency in the Meat Puppets’ catalog over the band’s near 30-year history is the consistent shift in their sonic identity. The band has explored Hardcore, Cow Punk, Folk, Psych Pop and several permutations within, between and beyond those genre tags, but, from frontman Curt Kirkwood’s perspective, completely without calculation.

For the Meat Puppets’ 12th studio album, Sewn Together, Kirkwood (with bassist brother Cris and drummer Ted Marcus) doesn’t stray too far from the dusty Psych Folk/Cow Punk that marked 2006’s Rise to Your Knees.

They celebrate this latest incarnation at the Mad Hatter with Retribution Gospel Choir and Raccoon City. Get Sound Advice here.
