Jessie Frye Covers the Mountain Goats' "The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton" (NSFW)

Denton's own Jessie Frye tackles the latest installment of 35 Denton's cover series with perhaps the most Texas-referential one yet, reinterpreting the Mountain Goats' "The Best Ever Death Metal Band in Denton," off 2002's Emperor Jones LP, All Hail West Texas. Gone is John Darnielle's small-town story about metal bros Jeff and Cyrus, replaced with a black & white, pseudo-sacrificial, NSFW romp through North Texas woods.

Between this video and the Best Coast one earlier this week, 35D is certainly doing a great job of making us feel weird "inside."

Also, where are all these covers going to end up, hmm? We'll probably find out soon, yes?

In other news, this Saturday night, 35 Denton does Dallas at 2826 Arnetic, where they'll be showcasing the talents of fest acts -topic, Soviet, the Demigs and Mexican Lions. Bonus: You could win a wristband for the fest.

Their schedule is now live, so get to plotting.

I can't remember the last time I heard such a ridiculously awful cover.  


completely embarrassing for everyone.

Like Jessie Frye, this video is mysteriously haunting and enchantingly alluring.  Jessie made musical love to her fans during an intensely sensuous performance at the Kessler last night, a performance that fluctuated brilliantly between titillating thrills and sentimental chills.  I'll be eagerly awaiting any and all creations from this incomparably brilliant young artist.
