Following in the Virginia metal workhorse tradition of Gwar, Municipal Waste, and Pig Destroyer comes Moutheater, a band rooted in ‘90s grunge tradition via the Melvins and Jesus Lizard, yet falling in the line with the minimalist approach of heavy up-and-comers Tombs. The one quality that helps the band standout above the white noise of their peers comes from the vocals of Andrew Aircraft (and what a name). With enough roar power to require a new set of drawers, “Guts” is a short and sweet statement of raw power. The band’s first 7” was recorded by the king of heavy, Steve Albini, and their new album Ornament is due out June 30th on Thrashed Records.

Bob Dylan: Together Through Life—The big release of the week comes from one of the most important songwriters in pop music history. Dylan has been undergoing something of a renaissance late in life, working at a pace many younger musicians can’t match. Together Through Life came together on the road last year and is something of a bonus to fans, coming hot on the heels of 2008’s critically acclaimed The Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs.
