Buzz Osborne and Trevor Dunn Release “Gift of Sacrifice”

King Buzzo: Gift of SacrificeBuzz Osborne, aka King Buzzo, of The Melvins has released a second solo LP called Gift of Sacrifice. The acoustic album features the guitarist/vocalist in a duo format with Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, who performs entirely on the upright bass.

“’Gift of Sacrifice’ was a stone groove to record and it will be a f*cking blast to finally hit the road with my buddy Trevor Dunn,” says Osborne. “Trevor’s bass playing is superb. With a guy like Trevor, you get the best results when you just let him do his thing. Trusting the musicians you work with is a very important part of how I write and record music and with Trevor I know I’ll never be disappointed with what he plays.”

Hear Dunn’s awesome melodic and rhythmic sensibilities on the track “I’m Glad I Could Help Out”:

Gift of Sacrifice is available now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
