Track of the day : Bill Orcutt : Zip A Dee Doo Dah

Ex-Harry Pussy guitarist Bill Orcutt has already released one great album this year, the Chris Corsano collaboration The Raw And The Cooked, so the news of an additional solo record will come as a welcome surprise to avant-rock fans everywhere. A History Of Every One, out September 30 via Editions Mego, features Orcutt covering a host of well known (if perhaps not exactly well regarded) “standards” – songs like “White Christmas”, “When You Wish Upon A Star”, “Black Betty” and “The Ballad Of Davy Crockett” – in his own inimitable style. According to the press release, “Orcutt interrogates the apparent banality of his material, subjecting it to discontinuity, disjuncture and a fractured repetition that is disturbing and revelatory”; to me, it just sounds like glorious noise. Listen to “Zip A Dee Doo Dah” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
