Puerto Muerto – See You In Hell

Second album from Chicago alt.country couple lets a little light in

Trending Now

That their debut album?an extraordinarily compelling blend of Appalachian and Spanish traditional folk, Weimar cabaret, Tex-Mex rock and gothic alt.country?was called Your Bloated Corpse Has Washed Ashore gives a fair indication of Tim Kelley and Christa Meyer’s aesthetic. Despite the dramatic flounce of its title and a cover of the traditional “Hangman’s Song”, however, the second album from this Chicago couple is a brighter, lighter, leaner affair. See You In Hell works on the interplay between back-porch guitar and vocals, lifted by odd flourishes of kazoo (on “Mango”) and trumpet (the lovely, lilting “Tennessee”). Hell-bound sounds, maybe, but still quite heavenly.
