Big Walnuts Yonder full album stream

by | May 1, 2017

This is how you prep for Cinco de Mayo — with a Big Walnuts Yonder full album stream.

A band featuring Nick Reinhart of Tera Melos, bassist/vocalist Mike Watt of Minutemen and The StoogesWilco guitarist Nels Cline and Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier, the project isn’t a supergroup — “It’s worlds colliding,” insists Watt.

The self-titled album is a 10-track effort that was recorded in 3 days with producer (and former Pere Ubu bassist) Tony Maimone. It’s a clash of proto-punk, free jazz, power pop, experimental music, and psych-rock all in one.

Saunier said, “We basically had to invent a new band on the spot. And people might have a stereotype of what each person does, but we all showed up to do what we’re prevented from doing in other groups.” The main focus of the record: “Let’s not overindulge and make it a ‘musician’s recording’.”

Here’s a stream of Big Walnuts Yonder in its entirety.

It comes out May 5th via Sargent House.
