The latest song from Jon Spencer & The HITMakers doesn't really sound like anything Jon Spencer has released before, but still sounds like Jon Spencer. "Worm Town" is this straight up weirdo mostly spoken word groovy psychedelic freak out, but more like a freak out from The Stooges than a jam band would produce. The entire song you're kind of listening and expecting the song to explode into a JSBX burst of punk blues, and a few times "Worm Town" sounds like it's just about to... and then it doesn't. The song has an almost mechanical or conveyor belt feel to it as it plods around meandering slightly. It's an interesting direction for Spencer to go with his new band, and has us even more intrigued about their upcoming album.
You can listen to "Worm Town" below. Spencer Gets It Lit is due out April 1 on Shove Records and can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp. For more on Jon Spencer & The HITmakers, check out the band on Facebook and Twitter.
