Though TOUCH THE SPIDER! are influenced by rather different types of music, it's difficult to pidgeonhole them.
You can literally feel the melancholy. Hearing the songs you are torn between depression and blissful happiness.
The ailing fagile vocals depict human suffering. Look out for the brink of delusion, grief, hate, agony, depression, horror, apocalypse, murder and suicide.
Grab the tunes from their Facebook page HERE
While the album could be purchased at gigs, it was never made widely available. The track-list and artwork here differ from those on the original CD version.

So the weather has been great and I've been spending my days drinking cold beer and enjoying the fresh air as you've might have noticed with the absence of post's and what not. I threw together a playlist of old Grunge tunes and this has been my soundtrack as of late. I had to split this baby up on account of it being so large, but hey, there were so many great songs back then that they all had to be part of this. All the bigger named bands are here and a lot of lost gems and unknown bands as well. Anyway this is the first of twelve. Grab yourself a cool one and a shady spot in the yard, it's time to kick back and remember the last 20 years or so...

One of my most favorite SXSW 2012 lucky discoveries this year was the killer folk/blues/roots music of CADILLAC FLAMBE from Kansas City, MO. Actually, to be more precise, the band calls it “blue-eyed Americana psychedelic soul.” And that’s precisely much more accurately precise. “Devil’s Branch” leads off from the Porch with a twangy funky guitar intro, and then wastes no time firing-up the foot-stomping, harmonica harmonies. If it doesn’t take you back to some memories of “Jackson” on this, we’ll beg you to tell us where it does take you. “Playing With Fire” is a slow and subtle mid-afternoon chill-out. Havilah’s crazy beautiful vocs take center stage on this one, with more killer harmonica play (damn, brother…this band’s gonna miss you big time). (read the entire review HERE).

Here's a review of what I wrote about this Band from when The Sludge Swamp was the Bee's Knee's back in 2010. It still holds true, only you can get an extra track with this download..
“OK. This EP Rocks hard! Tuber are a Band from Greece but You'd think they came from California & brought the desert right in the room with You. Seriously, I recommend picking this one up. Four tracks of hypnotizing killer music & they're giving it away, god love em”. ~ (yeoldstinkeye, Sludge Swamp 2010.)
