Sludge-rock overlords Melvins are planning to release Basses Loaded, their latest album-length experiment. On this one, they’re teaming up with a whole pile of guest bassists, including Krist Novoselic. We’ve posted “Hideous Woman” and the band’s version of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.” And now they’ve shared something I wasn’t expecting: A Beatles cover. The band has recorded an evil-but-tuneful version of the Beatles’ Revolver song “I Want To Tell You,” with Redd Kross bassist Steve McDonald sitting in. Listen to it below, via The Wall Street Journal.
Basses Loaded is out 6/3 on Ipecac.
