The Chewers

Here's a reader submission for ya...don't usually get these, but I'm always open to them...hit me up at

This duo, out of West Virginia, is called The Chewers, and from what I've heard reminds me of stuff like Caroliner, but more structured and easier on the ears (to an extent).

They've got a video out that's kinda like some Residents shit. Just as weird, too.

Here's a little bio they sent along:

"The Chewers are Travis Caffrey and Michael Sadler, two
freaks from the woods of West Virginia (by way of Nashville), USA.
We each play various instruments, in order to create layered arrangements
in the vein of avant-roots-rock (or something like that).
The songs feature characters immersed in psychological hells, grappling
with deep disconnect from the society around them. These subjects are
generally presented with a deadpan and crooked sense of humor."

The album they're currently pushing, 'Chuckle Change and Also' is their second, and can be found here.

They've also got a Soundcloud page with some more tunes.

Dig it, yall.
