Bonny and Sweeney are back-and the men of Superwolf have a new pair of songs on Drag City for the first time since that album of six years gone now. Of course, they get together intermittently. They strummed up a song for Wim Wender's film called the Palermo Shooting back in 2008, and last year, they delighted the viewers of Adult Swim (who hear using their eyes, too) with a cover of "Love in the Hot Afternoon." There's another track in the can, but that's another story and not this one... for now, you will be satisfied with this new full-color 10" single (that comes on black vinyl, don't misunderstand). "Must Be Blind" B&W "Life in Muscle" bring the boys' summer back home again. Matt's guitar's burbling rumble evokes the constant trickle of sweat and the madness of bodies crushed together on the street, while Bonny's parched vocals create thirst and the slow stretching of the limbs in the sunlight. Sweeney and Bonny are supported in their musical mini-epics by frequent drums companion Pete Townsend and a pair of talents from the still-vibrant Nashville scene: engineer David Ferguson, who also played bass, and the renowed Ronnie McCoury on mandolin. All the sounds here lend their parts to the moist, heaving whole.
