Since the late '80s, Mudhoney - the Seattle-based foursome whose muck-crusted version of rock, shot through with caustic wit and battened down by a ferocious low end - has been a high-pH tonic against the ludicrous and the insipid.

Thirty years later, the world is experiencing a particularly high-water moment for both those ideals. But just in time, vocalist Mark Arm, guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison, and drummer Dan Peters are back with Digital Garbage, a barbed-wire-trimmed collection of sonic brickbats. Arm's raw yawp and his bandmates' long-honed chemistry make Digital Garbage an ideal release valve for the 2018 pressure cooker. ''My sense of humor is dark, and these are dark times,'' says Arm. ''I suppose it's only getting darker.''

Digital Garbage opens with the swaggering ''Nerve Attack,'' which can be heard as a nod both to modern-life anxiety and the ever-increasing threat of warfare. The album's title comes from the outro of ''Kill Yourself Live,'' which segues from a revved-up Arm organ solo into a bleak look at the way notoriety goes viral. Arm says: ''people really seem to find validation in the likes-and then there's Facebook Live, where people have streamed torture and murder, or, in the case of Philando Castile, getting murdered by a cop. In the course of writing that song, I thought about how, once you put something out there online, you can't wipe it away. It's always going to be there-even if no one digs it up, it's still out there floating somewhere.''

Appropriately enough, bits of recent news events float through the record: ''Please Mr. Gunman,'' on which Arm bellows ''We'd rather die in church!'' over his bandmates' careening charge, was inspired by a TV-news bubblehead's response to a 2017 church shooting, while the ominous refrain that opens the submerged-blues of ''Next Mass Extinction'' calls back to last summer's clashes in Charlottesville.

Mudhoney's core sound-steadily pounding drums, swamp-thing bass, squalling guitar wobble, Arm's hazardous-chemical voice-remains on Digital Garbage, which the band recorded with longtime collaborator (and Digital Garbage pianist) Johnny Sangster at the Seattle studio Litho. The anti-religiosity shimmy ''21st Century Pharisees'' builds its case with Maddison's woozy synths, which Arm says ''add a really nice touch to the proceedings.'' Digital Garbage closes with ''Oh Yeah,'' a brief celebration of skateboarding, surfing, biking, and the joy provided by these escape valves. ''I would've really just loved to write songs about just hanging out on the beach, and going on a nice vacation,'' says Arm. ''But, you know, that probably doesn't make for great rock.''

Mudhoney, however, know what does make great rock-and the riffs and fury of Digital Garbage will stand the test of time, even if the particulars fade away. ''I've tried to keep things somewhat universal, so that this album doesn't just seem like of this time-hopefully some of this stuff will go away,'' Arm laughs. ''You don't want to say in the future, 'Hey, those lyrics are still relevant. Great!'''

Was haben Amazon, Boeing, Starbucks und Sub Pop gemeinsam? Sie alle stammen aus Seattle. Ende der Gemeinsamkeiten. Was man bei Sub Pop von den anderen drei Exportschlagern aus der Needle-Stadt hält, ist unbekannt, aber mit Mark Arm, seines Zeichens sowohl Lagerchef bei Sub Pop als auch Frontmann bei Mudhoney, erhebt zumindest ein Sub Pop Angestellter ab und an die Stimme, um seine Statements in die Welt zu blasen. Zuletzt geschah dies in recht unmissverständlicher Art und Weise 2018 auf dem zehnten Album "Digital Garbage" von Mudhoney. "Morning In America" ist die neue 7-Song-EP mit Tracks, die während der Sessions für "Digital Garbage" aufgenommen wurde.Zu den Songs gehören "Let's Kill Yourself Live Again" (eine alternative Version des "Digital Garbage" Tracks "Kill Yourself Live" und der Bonustrack für die japanische CD-Version des Albums), die drei Songs "Snake Oil Charmer", "Morning In America" und "Creeps Are Everywhere", die nicht mehr auf das Album passten, sowie "Ensam I Natt" ("So Lonely Tonight" - ein Leather Nun-Cover) und "Vortex Of Lies" von der limitierten EU-Tour 7" Single. Die Songs wurden in Johnny Sangsters Studio Crackle & Pop gemischt. "Morning In America" wird nur auf 12" Vinyl und über digitale Dienste erhältlich sein. Morning in America consists of 7 songs that were recorded during the sessions for Mudhoney's 2018 album, Digital Garbage ("_an astute, politically relevant and commendably fired-up garage punk belter of an LP," - The Quietus). The tracks include "Let's Kill Yourself Live Again" (an alternate version of the Digital Garbage stand-out "Kill Yourself Live," and the bonus track for the Japanese CD version of that album), "One Bad Actor" (a new version of Mudhoney's track on the limited-edition, and now very sold-out, SPF30 split 7" single w Hot Snakes), album outtakes "Snake Oil Charmer," "Morning in America" and "Creeps Are Everywhere," plus "Ensam I Natt" ("So Lonely Tonight," a Leather Nun cover) and "Vortex of Lies" from a very limited EU tour 7"....

,Digital Garbage" ist das zehnte Album von Mudhoney in 30
Jahren, eine mit Stacheldraht besetzte Sammlung von
musikalischen Wurfgeschossen. Seit den späten 80er Jahren ist
Mudhoney - das in Seattle beheimatete Quartett, dessen
rustikale Version von Rock mit schrägem Humor durchsetzt ist -
ein High-End-Tonikum gegen das Lächerliche und das
Fadenscheinige. Dreißig Jahre später erlebt die Welt für beide
Ideale einen besonderen Hochwassermoment. Und gerade noch
rechtzeitig sind Sänger Mark Arm, Gitarrist Steve Turner, Bassist
Guy Maddison und Schlagzeuger Dan Peters mit ,Digital Garbage"
zurück. Mark Arms rohes ,Yawp" und die langgezogene Chemie
seiner Bandkollegen machen ,Digital Garbage" zu einem idealen
Ablassventil für den Schnellkochtopf 2018, dessen eindringliche
Rhythmen und Arms sardonische Texte einen Zerrspiegel für den
immer lächerlicheren Nachrichtenzyklus bieten. ,Mein Sinn für
Humor ist dunkel, und das sind dunkle Zeiten," sagt Arm. ,Ich
nehme an, es wird immer dunkler." Der Titel des Albums, ,Digital
Garbage", stammt aus dem Outro vom Track ,Kill Yourself Live",
das von einem aufgepeppten Orgel-Solo zu einem trostlosen Blick
auf die Art und Weise, wie Bekanntheit viral wird, übergeht. Der
Kernsound von Mudhoney- stabil klopfendes Schlagzeug,
sumpfiger Bass, stürmisches Gitarrenflattern, Arms chemischbrodelnde
Stimme - findet sich auch auf ,Digital Garbage", das die
Band mit dem langjährigen Mitarbeiter (und Pianisten) Johnny
Sangster im Seattle Studio Litho aufgenommen hat. Mudhoney
wissen genau, was großen Rock ausmacht - und die Riffs und die
Wut von ,Digital Garbage" werden den Test der Zeit bestehen.
