Last Good Tooth - 'And All Things on the Scales' (album stream) (premiere)
Last Good Tooth delves even deeper into dark Americana on their second album.
Dig into the second album by Last Good Tooth, and if you know you're indie rock, you'll hear an incredible similarity to the great Lambchop, not only in the use of horns but especially when it comes to the crooning of guitarist Penn Sultan. Only with this band, they take the music into the darker corners of Americana. Sure, there's a sense of playfulness at times, but with the aching fiddle by Alex Spoto adding a strong, melancholic atmosphere.
"This album, in its entirety, is about weighing options, making decisions," Sultan tells PopMatters. "Some are small, some are large. Some are terrifyingly large. And with one yes, another no. But also like going to a restaurant where you know what you like and you get it every time and you want to try something new but you are so afraid. It could be bad and it costs money."
And All Things on the Scales will be released on 2 October.
