Move over Alison Krauss. Lookout, Buckwheat Zydeco. Step off, Nanci Griffith: Ween is in ur labl, trippin ur ballz.
The new album, La Cucaracha, comes out on Oct. 23. You can hear the whole thing at the band’s MySpace page. I already did, and can honestly say that it’s the first Ween album since The Mollusk to give me strychnine shivers. Be sure to listen to the songs in order, but steel yourself for "Spirit Walker." That shit hurts.
To be fair, Rounder also has They Might Be Giants on the roster. Maybe they’ll force Ween to do a kids’ album. God help us.
