The last album from Lee Baggett came curling under the radar, a wobbled mixture of psych-folk and roots layin’ low on Perpetual Doom last year. Baggett hits back hard with a follow-up, letting the mixture curdle in the sun, baking it into a Cosmic American crust that’s just what these damnable temps called for. Lee swings out nicely with a double dose of first singles, the country ramble of “Highway Roll,” and the more gnarled “Fruit Dog.” The latter is dirt-slung saunter through queasy country, coughing up glam bile in a fever dream dirge that’s losing its grip on reality but holding its grip on the throttle. The new album, Anyway, is out September 30th, again on Perpetual Doom.
