Dutch Oven: Whammy b/w Ellen 7″ single 1992

Dutch Oven

Dutch Oven presents themselves as Indie rock from Minneapolis and this piece of vinyl was the only one released on the Prospective label. “Whammy” has a few interesting elements to it: Part Quentin Tarantino soundtrack, part garage band and just the right amount of lazy. It reminds me of one those of Neil Young song’s where at first listen you are thinking to yourself “was that guitar note out of tune?” and then you realized that either way it doesn’t matter, it works.
