“A Meal Can Be Made”

Nowadays, Dominick Fernow is probably best known as a member of Cold Cave, but he’s better known to me (and anyone who means anything to me — looking at you, Mom) as Prurient. Both his live performances and records — particularly Shipwrecker’s Diary, The History of Aids, and Black Vase (but also Prurient, And Still, Wanting, and Pleasure Ground!) — have truly changed how I experience/think about music. On July 19, Prurient will release his Hydra Head debut with Bermuda Drain. Check out “A Meal Can Be Made” above, courtesy of Stereogum. It sounds nothing like old Prurient.
