Historically, the Weavers were the vital link between the leftist People's Songs movement of the '50s and the folk revival that emerged in the wake of the Kingston Trio in the '50s. Musically, the foursome delivered powerful harmonies and unearthed many songs that would become folk standards. This iconic live album features the Weavers in their pure form, minus the pop arrangements of their early singles, performing their best known tunes in front of a clearly delighted audience.
The second studio collaboration from Norwegian composer and producer John Erik Kaada and Faith No More/Mr. Bungle/Fantomas frontman Mike Patton, Bacteria Cult filters the cinematic vignettes of 2004's Romances through a widescreen lens. Bacteria Cult needs a little time to get into your bloodstream before it can be reckoned with, but ultimately, it's an infection worth sweating through.
