Harmony Korine always seemed a bit overrated to me. Most of his films sound interesting but continuously fail to live up to their potential. I don't know why, but I always feel a bit deflated and disappointed when I watch his work. Instead, I'd rather listen to this, an album of strummed up backwoods racket he made with one of his pals. There's a certain Amon Duulish primitivism and earthy howl that was quite surprising to me. For some reason, when I heard Korine had an album I expected it to be much more hip (maybe something with some coked out synthscapes and tight trousers). It's by no means groundbreaking, but it's still an enjoyable 30 minute listen. A delightful discovery.
