The Scrapes
The Songs of Baron Samedi
CS / MP3
« SAB 071 · SAB 073 »


Brisbane's The Scrapes make howling mechanical dirges with fiddle (Adam Cadell) and guitar (Ryan Potter) & other F/X, with plenty of nods to Henry Flynt, Tony Conrad and The Dirty Three. With a few under-the-radar releases in Australia the duo present their first US release & definitive statement: The Songs of Baron Samedi. The ritualistic moans and eerie bellows they've honed over the years soar and creak and spit on this set of songs.
