Brain Tentacles (Limited Release)

$19.00

Brain Tentacles was the first coffee & music release from the DMC record label, Press Pot Recordings. This Chicago-centric label was created as an avenue to collaborate with some of Chicago's finest musicians, artists, record labels and others working hard in the music field. This celebration of Chicago's rich music history will also benefit Experimental Sound Studios, a valued asset in the music community and a trusted partner. 

Brain Tentacles is the name of both the coffee and one of the featured bands, a supergroup of sorts, consisting of drummer Dave Witte (Municipal WasteDiscordance Axis, etc.), saxophonist Bruce Lamont (Corrections HouseYakuza, etc.) and bassist Aaron Dallison (Keelhaul). This metal-meets-jazz group's grinds & grooves are infectious concoctions of brilliance. Sonic-ally balancing out the other side of the record is Wild Jesus & The Devil's Lettuce Party Band, a name that is familiar with DMC fans, as it consists of multiple DMC family members. Their latest release fits perfectly in your record bin with King Crimson, Mr. Bungle and 13th Floor Elevators. Recorded at Piehold Studios, down the street from The Mothership, on both analog instruments and tape that adds a warmth and depth listeners will appreciate.
