Screaming Tree Barrett Martin Goes All Jazzbo And We Like It

Here’s one for all you burners. That is, if you can get Internets way out there in the desert? Or if not, let’s say it’s for all us burners-in-spirit, out BBQ’ing for Labor Day in the vast playas of America. Instrumental groovy world-jazz for your light stick. Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin, showing his jazzified side on “Daemon Lover” from his “Zenga” LP. Very nice work.

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.

Enjoying an Ash Gray Sunday with Screaming Trees

If you don’t love the Screaming Trees, your indie cred is revoked. Now we have that snobbery out of the way (it’s true, though, if you’re not down with Screaming Trees you’ll have to shave your mustache and turn in your college radio station keys, sorry) ahem, but as I was saying! They really were an excellent band. This record, which is being released digitally today, is a lost treasure of 1990’s Seattle rock. Seattle in the 90’s was, if you recall, the center of the universe for a hot minute after Nirvana exploded. 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.
