The Pacific Northwest’s got plenty of musical pride and joys to brag about, but the Melvins are one of the most enduring. Buzz Osborne (vocals/guitar) and Dale Crover (drums) have released new material almost every year since the ’80s, and the duo’s outdone themselves with their latest, A Walk with Love and Death. This double album merges a full-length, Death, with the score of a short film they produced themselves, Love. In a statement, Crover described the project as “one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip” that’s “not for the faint of heart.” The track “What’s Wrong with You” oozes sludgy discomfort, but the Melvins find a way to make even the most nightmare-inducing sounds listenable.
