Screaming Trees: Last Words: The Final Recordings
Buy! - (Sunyata)
Last Words collects various demo recordings this Ellensburg band made in 1998-99 before the band called it quits the following year. The long-lost demos were recently found by Trees drummer Barrett Martin, who had them cleaned up and mastered for official release, and the end result is a fitting swan song for one of the Northwest’s more underrated bands. The band’s latter-day blend of muscular hard rock, trippy psychedelia and jangly folk-rock sounds as classic as ever, making Last Words a worthy addition to the Trees’ illustrious catalog. 7/22/2011 - Don Yates
