Our old pal Todd Nolan from Nashville Tennessee brings us a barn-burner of an album this week. The Geraldine Fibbers' sophomore - and final - record, 'Butch', is a weird, wild amalgamation of alt-country, punk, Appalachian fiddle music, speed metal and anything/everything in between. Anchored by the raw, poetic story-songs of Carla Bozulich and stellar musicianship of the band - including guitar-God Nels Cline - it's ultimately Carla's gravely, angelic voice that seals the deal.
