Song of the Week: “Boot and Spleen” by Melt Yourself Down

by Douglas Cowie on 18 October 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Boot and Spleen” by Melt Yourself Down:

I went to see Melt Yourself Down on Wednesday night. They crank out a lot of noise and energy on stage. The jazz/dance qualities that you hear on the recording were driven by a thundering bass guitar sound, drummer and extra percussionist. They veered towards hardcore, sounded sometimes like they were channeling Tom Morello’s guitar through their saxophones, swerved through grime textures and cadences, all while sounding like themselves.
