Silkworm - The Marco Collins Sessions

Label: Matador
Year: 1995

This offering is quite a bit more mellow than our usual fodder, but the acoustic nature of the material does nothing to diminish the quality of the songs. If you have a place in your heart for Silkworm, then you'll probably be able to work with this one. If you never cared for the band, this won't be the record that changes your mind. The voices strain and crack to find "notes", but the band translates their music well in these arrangements.
Originally recorded and broadcast on KNDD's Young and the Restless radio show on 03-08-94, so, like the Tomahawk record below, the sound quality is superb.
It's a short 4 song ep, so you get a short ep length write-up.
