Curiously, songs about surgery tend to be some of music’s most disquieting cuts. No surprise, then, that “She’s IN Surgery (Steve’s Lunch Blues) [Feelin’ Caffrey Kuke Remix]” — a remix of Drainolith’s “She’s IN Insurgency” by DJ Michael Caffrey — has no intention of sounding quiet. On the other hand, Nate Young’s new track “Lapse of Time” offers a subtler chill, though I can imagine it described as the post-lobotomy internal monologue of a sedated soprano, having tragically lost her lobe for language. Or something.
We proudly premiere these new tracks, just as Nate Young and Drainolith prepare to set forth on a joint East Coast tour, which we reported Tuesday. Incidentally, each artist has been involved with bands whose names relate to both wolves and biology: Mr. Young is in Wolf Eyes, while Drainolith, a.k.a. Alex Moskos, was among the storied ranks of AIDS Wolf. So, maybe let’s call this the “Lupine Health Care” tour?
• Drainolith - “She’s IN Surgery (Steve’s Lunch Blues) [Feelin’ Caffrey Kuke Remix]”:
• Nate Young - “Lapse of Time”:
The original version of Drainolith’s “She’s IN Surgery” can be heard on his album Fighting! from Spectrum Spools. Nate Young’s “Lapse of Time” will be released on an upcoming single-sided LP from Black Moss.
