Dale Crover, legendary drummer for the Melvins has previewed his new album The Fickle Finger of Fate with a stream for “Little Brother.” “I got the idea to do this record after doing the super limited Skins disc,” explained Crover. “The idea was to write new songs that all tie in with drum haikus from Skins.” songs on The Fickle Finger of Fate range from weirdo rock to poppy strangeness with psychotic, psychedelic drum grooves as palate cleansers in between.

The 20 track album features several interludes and was co-produced by Crover along with longtime producer Toshi Kasai. Crover played most of the instruments on the album as well as providing the lead vocals. Guest on the record include Redd Kross’ Steven McDonald, Dan Southwick (Altamont) and Crover’s adorable 11-year-old daughter Scarlett who assists with violin, percussion and vocals.
