From Brood X, out now on In the Red, although Amazon says April 21. Not sure what’s up with that, but coordinating release dates is tricky.
Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer are the coolest married couple ever. Watch them creep around a haunted mansion, and if you haven’t read the recent New York Times profile you really should. It’s an illuminating look into their domestic life where Martinez has a day job at Bon Appétit magazine and Spencer bakes chocolate-chip cookies.
Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer are bringing back their New York art/punk/scuzz band Boss Hog just when we needed them. We hadn’t heard from them since 2000’s Whiteout until they released a four-song EP in July. Along with veterans Jens Jurgensen on bass and Hollis Queens on drums, and newcomer Mickey Finn on keys, they’re releasing the full-length Brood X on March 24 on In The Red. Follow them on Facebook for all the latest revolutionary insurrection.
I’ve always thought Boss Hog was cool. I still have my turntable mat from their eponymous 1995 album even though I got rid of the record years ago. I’m happy to hear they’re still making a ruckus.
