Strapping Fieldhands "Wattle & Daub" LP

Side one of The Strapping Fieldhands record sounds better in 2007 then it did in 1997 when I bought it. Of course it sounded real good then too but after free folk and psych rock and various variations thereof have been run into the ground and turned inside out here in the MySpace era it's nice to hear it the way people did it before it got "done". I would play this album for any Guided by Voices fan, and I actually get fairly frequent Butthole Surfers vibes too. "Ben Franklin Airbath" is the hit currently playing on WBLSTD. Side two on the other hand loses me. I remember now that it lost me in '97 and it's losing me again in '07.
