How is the Deadly Snakes? The guy at the record store says I'd like them. He was right with The Hold Steady and we both like a lot of the same other stuff. Is it good stuff?

The Deadly Snakes are fucking awesome. If I were to cast about and declare any youngish group "them whats gots it" at the moment it would be the Deadly Snakes. The Stones and Dylan are their primary touchstones, but punk, Nick Cave, psychedelic music, Nuggets, and gospel get thrown into the sound as well. They are from Canada and genuinely recall a kind of garagey version of the Band, with their ambitious arrangements, often archaic language and multiple singers and songwriters.

Their new album, Porcella, is their fourth (comes out next week on In the Red. How any band is supposed to compete with a new Stones album and all this Dylan broohaha is beyond me). They released their first album on Sympathy for the Record Industry right around the same time the White Stripes released their first album on Sympathy (maybe the same week?). For a while, Greg Cartwright from the Reining Sound was in the band (he produced their first record, played on their second and contributed a couple of songs).

Their first record is an extremely raw-ly recorded guit/bass/drum/organ + horns assault with lotsa good toons - more ambitious than your average party-garage record, and all sung by Andre Ethier, their gravelly voiced "front man". I loved it from the start but its Stonesyness put off a lot of "garage" fans and its rawness put off a lot of Stones fans.

The second album is a "difficult transitional album" and lacks focus although it sports cleaner production and some great songs. Cartwright and Max "Age of" Danger have a couple songs each, but most are still Ethier's.

Their third record, Ode to Joy, is where Danger really steps into the role of secondary vocalist and songwriter, and the band gains an awesome balance. This is still kind of a party record, but it takes on extremely dark and sinister overtones, giving it that "party at the end of time" vibe that recalls cool records like, I dunno, Let It Bleed and Sticky Fingers in spirit if not in virtuosity. This is where I would start. Well recorded, sporting a ton of great songs, brooding, menacing and rocking, this is easily one of my fave albums of the 21st Century.

Ethier recorded a swell Dylanesque solo album with a couple of guys named Pickles and Price that was released last year, I think, and Danger appeared in that new George Romero flick.

Meanwhile, they retreated to a cabin in Canada to record Porcella, which sounds like Exile meets Forever Changes or something. It's crazy back porch baroque rock and roll with pennywhistles and toy pianos and strings, all used in service of song rather than faux experimentally, and without sacrificing important shit like guitar, drums and yelling. I didn't quite know what to make of it at first, but it has grown on me big time, and continues to get heavy alternating play w/Bigger Bang.

Right now I'm listening to Fats Waller.
