Les Claypool's Duo de Twang to Release FOUR FOOT SHACK Album, 2/4; Tour Dates Announced!
Unlike Les Claypool's work with Primus, his new project with old buddy Brian Kehoe, Duo de Twang, focuses more on the Americana/rootsy side of things - as is heard throughout the band's debut recording Four Foot Shack, to be released via ATO Records on February 4th.
"This record represents what I personally listen to these days," Claypool told Rolling Stone. "Guys like Johnny Horton, Jerry Reed and Vernon Dalhart are the soundscape of my world as I'm boiling up crab in the backyard or working on my old Chryslers, so the notion of 'twangifying' my tunes seemed like a damn good idea." As evidenced by DDT's live shows and debut, Les and Bryan mostly mix traditional tunes, popular covers, and readings of Primus classics (all of which are usually barely recognizable when compared to the original versions).
You can now stream the album in full via Rolling Stone HERE. Duo de Twang has also added additional live dates to their upcoming spring tour.
