Digital Garbage

    Mudhoney Digital Garbage CD      Since the late '80s, Mudhoney the Seattle-based foursome whose muck-crusted version of rock, shot through with caustic wit and battened down by a ferocious low end has been a high-pH tonic against the ludicrous and the insipid.   Thirty years later, the world is experiencing a particularly high-water moment for both those ideals. But just in time, vocalist Mark Arm, guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison, and drummer Dan Peters are back with Digital Garbage, a barbed-wire-trimmed collection of sonic brickbats. Arm's raw yawp and his bandmates' long-honed chemistry make Digital Garbage an ideal release valve for the 2018 pressure cooker, its insistent rhythms forcing movement and Arm's sardonic lyrics offering a funhouse-mirror companion to the ever-more-ridiculous news cycle. "My sense of humor is dark, and these are dark times," says Arm. "I suppose its only getting darker."   Digital Garbage opens with the swaggering "Nerve Attack," which can be heard as a nod both to  modern-life anxiety and the ever-increasing threat of warfare. The album's title comes from the outro of "Kill Yourself Live," which segues from a revved-up Arm organ solo into a bleak look at the way notoriety goes viral. "Im not on social media, so my experience is somewhat limited," says Arm. "But people really seem to find validation in the likesand then there's Facebook Live, where people have streamed torture and murder, or, in the case of Philando Castile, getting murdered by a cop. Mudhoney, however, know what does make great rockand the riffs and fury of Digital Garbage will stand the test of time, even if the particulars fade away. "I've tried to keep things somewhat universal, so that this album doesnt just seem like of this timehopefully some of this stuff will go away," Arm laughs. "You dont want to say in the future, 'Hey, those lyrics are still relevant. Great!'
