King Buzzo

Today everybody's favorite rock music idiot-savant, Buzz Osbourne, released the debut album for his solo acoustic project King Buzzo, entitled This Machine Kills Artists.

I haven't listened to the full album yet, and I don't plan on writing a review, but what I've heard has got a dark, gritty sound to it that I really enjoy. I'm not comfortable enough with the "Dark Americana" label to know exactly where it applies, but I feel like this could be one of those places. In any case, the result reminds me a bit of when Wino released Adrift: suddenly the frontman for a band I like seemed like he might have missed his true calling in a more stripped-down music style.

Anyhow, it's certainly piqued my interest.
