Meet the Seals & Crofts of a new dark age. Hot on the heels of their rapturously-received and Novello Award-winning 2021 release “Glen Krupa World’s Great Drummer,” bassists and multi-instrumentalists Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Melvins Lite) and Kevin Rutmanis (Cows, Melvins, Tomahawk) have again joined forces to create a lite-jazz tour de force, “Crack Pot Whore Head.” Abetted by percussionist Lee Afentopoulos, the duo weave a silken blend of buttery evil, rich in languid menace. The breakout single “Mime Om” seems torn from the very larynx of War’s “Low Rider” before being drenched in bitter schizoid drippings. Taken as a whole, “Crack Pot” flays the very idea of soul—sinuous, insinuating, oozing, bleating. It’s an out of control bus barreling through the parade of music, backing up and doing it again and again.
