Sunburned Hand of The Man - "Ishkabibble Magoo"

I first discovered Sunburned Hand of The Man back in 2005 when the collective opened up for Dinosaur Jr at The Middle East. They've always been one of those bands that have been nearly impossible to define, and that goes with their latest single, "Ishkabibble Magoo." The band convened in January of last year in Turner's Falls, MA with members coming in and out of the sessions. The new song is surprising in how straightforward it is. Sunburned Hand of The Man have always been an experimental project, but "Ishkabibble Magoo" is pretty much a straightforward folk-ish song. This might be the first of their songs that you could play in front of normies and not have them recoil completely. 

You can listen to "Ishkabibble Magoo" below. Nimbus is due out April 12 on Three Lobed Recordings, and is available for pre-order via Bandcamp. For more on Sunburned Hand of The Man, check out the artist's website.
