Poor Luther's Bones - "That The World May Sing Far Away Music, Honky" (self-released 2003, CDR)
Uploaded to Aural Innovations: September 2003
The band come from Pennsylvania and have been around for about 10 years. This is their fifth release. There are 20 tracks on this CD, all between 2-4 minutes long. The band certainly try to and succeed at creating their own brand of weird pop music, in the same sense (but a different way) that say Olivia Tremor Control do. The bio has them compared to the Flaming Lips and at times I can see that. The band have some very funny lyrics and I can imagine the guys sitting around smoking a few joints and making up weird shit! What more to say... If you like interesting, strange singer songwriter type things with a clear American sound, go for it. I think you will grow to appreciate the art they are creating.
