so new mexico’s imperial rooster have a “newer” record out entitled cluckaphony. ive been meaning to give this a spin since it was released all the way back in march. oops! i have been a fan of their raucous ways/sound for what seems like a few years now. in fact their 2011 release, decent people, was one of my favorite records of the year. well, im finally listening to cluckaphony, and dammit i love it. if you like your music with a “this all may fall apart at any second” kind of looseness then you’ll love the rooster. thats not a diss at all, cause i love when bands sound like they are flying by the seat of their proverbial pants and just letting it all hang out. sure their may be some fuck ups along the way, but god damn if that dont make for a more interesting listen. not saying the rooster should be huge, cause of course they arent for everyone, but me thinks a lot more folks should be jumping on board, but thats just this drunk mans opinion. cluckaphony is a “name your price” type of deal via their bandcamp page. throw em a buck or two, at least, or dont, its your money, but these are fucking awesome people to boot. oh and their also couch by couchwest alum, so you know their solid folks.
