Book of Knots, 'Traineater' (Anti-)

Critical Mass
Label: Anti-

by Jason Gross

Don't just take note of this doomy Brooklyn art-rock combo (featuring members of Skeleton Key, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and Pere Ubu) because of the cameos by their famous friends: Tom Waits growling ("Pray"), Jon Langford sneering ("Boomtown"), Mike Watt reciting in deadpan ("Pedro to Cleveland"). Also heed their smarts (imagine an earthier Mars Volta), Carla Kihlstedt's sweet vocals, and the desperate-times-in-the-Midwest theme that trumps John Mellencamp's retread Chevy-truck scenarios.
