Buck Gooter - "Peace Siren"

Photo by Paul Somers
Buck Gooter are about to release their 18th album in 14 years, which seems insane since they've somehow escaped my notice until now. "Peace Siren" isn't quite like anything else I've ever heard. The band describes themselves as a "primal industrial blues band," and I have to agree with that assessment. "Peace Siren" has a dirty, bluesy guitar with strained, almost screaming vocals and a driving electronic sounding beat. It's almost as if Steve Albini joined Ministry and decided to make a very serious party song. Trust me, listening to "Peace Siren" doesn't make more sense than reading about it, but you'll get no arguments from us.

You can watch the video for "Peace Siren" below. Buck Gooter's new album, Finer Thorns, will be out on February 22 via Ramp Local. You can pre-order the album on Bandcamp. For more on Buck Gooter, check out their website. Current tour dates are below the video.
