The Melvins’ King Buzzo has a new solo acoustic record but what makes this news even more exciting is that King Buzzo has recorded this record with the fabulously talented bass player Trevor Dunn. Trevor was a founding member of Mr. Bungle and also plays bass in the psycho metal/spaghetti western band Fantômas, as well as recording and touring with the Melvins (as Melvins Lite). 

"As much of a Dunn project as a Buzzo one, and as close to Hostile Ambient Takeover as any Melvins or Ms-adjacent project has gotten in a very long time (since The Bride Screamed Murder, at least). And it doesn't feel like a rehash either, which is refreshing as Buzz has seemed a little strapped for ideas lately, which would account for his whole "I dunno, let's do another collab with someone we know and worked with before and maybe I won't piss them off this time?" approach for the past few years. This is probably the most I've enjoyed any Melvins since Buzz's underrated This Machine Kills Artists or even Bride, which is also extremely underrated (it's probably the second most cinematic Melvins album behind The Crybaby, and feels like the big dark conclusion of the Big Business trilogy after Senile Animal and Nude With Boots). Pretty even split between riff-driven Buzz cuts that sound like traditional Melvins tracks and moody Trevor jazz excursions, with Dunn's basslines getting pretty tricky even in more straightforward rockers like "I'm Glad I Could Help Out", "Mock She" or especially slow-burning standout "Science in Modern America"."
