What a salad of 1,000 delights. Listening to the boogie blues of Voodelic’s Conjure LP and then this sludgy news item lands in my ear.

The Melvins are streaming their forthcoming album, Hold It In (Oct. 14, Ipecac Recordings), in its entirety via Pandora right herez.

Joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover for the 12-song album are Butthole Surfers’ guitar player Paul Leary and bass player JD Pinkus. Hold It In was recorded in both Los Angeles and Austin earlier this year.

Digital pre-orders for Hold It In are available now via iTunes with the album lead-off, “Bride of Crankenstein,” offered as an immediate download upon order here. Rolling Stone previously premiered “Brass Cupcake,” saying the new record “sounds like the Cars and Devo plugging into Blue Cheer’s amp stacks.”

The Melvins kick off a round of U.S. tour dates on Oct. 15 in Sacramento at Assembly, with label mates Le Butcherettes opening through Oct. 30. Osborne, Crover and Pinkus will be the touring line-up for this run of dates.
