MP3: Woods & Amps For Christ – “From Oatmeal to Buttermilk”

There has been a tradition going back to almost the begin of Shrimper of artists on the label collaborating with one another. From John Davis/Lou Barlow’s Folk Implosion to Franklin Bruno & John Darnielle’s Extra G/Lens with dozens of other examples in between. This Split LP between WOODS & AMPS FOR CHRIST began as a kernel for a split 7″ single but grew into this full length split LP featuring 4 songs by each artist and an additional collaborative track. Woods & Amps for Christ explore a lot of the same land mass as one another, but manage to turn over different rocks & shards of glass. Working independently from one another, you will hear the sublime manner in which the 2 sides of the LP (or the harsh tinny digital skree of the MP3’s for you 20th century types, dig your irony) complement one another both musically & lyrically. Check out the ESP interplay of Barnes & Earl when together or separated by coasts.
