Screaming Trees, “Ash Gray Sunday”

If you don’t love the Screaming Trees, your indie cred is revoked, because they really were an excellent band. This record, which is being released digitally today, is a lost treasure of 1990s Seattle rock. These recordings, made in Stone Gossard’s studio in the late 90’s, are now finally available for us to enjoy. “Ash Gray Sunday” is a free download, and it is the kind of beautiful angsty power pop you’d expect from these proto-grunge heroes.
