This is the last album from the late, great Seattle band Dorkweed, titled Sometimes Animals Die. In addition to being prolific (releasing five LPs, an EP, and a DVD between 1998 and 2004), Dorkweed was an energetic and extremely fun live act, and one of our favorite bands ever.

“Dorkweed are power pop with balls. And bite. And, um, creamed corn? As the name (and the song about creamed corn) suggests, Dorkweed have a slightly skewed view on life and how to react to it–which makes their highly infectious songs that much more satisfying to sing along to. And you will.”
– Barbara Mitchell, the Stranger.

“On the Seattle band’s sixth release Some Animals Die, [Brent Amacher’s] cool coarseness melded with the high-powered pop melodies sniff of Pixies’ crankiness and Weezer’s tongue-in-cheek silliness.”

Seattle based alt-rock band, Dorkweed releases their fifth record, Fluxivity Test Project (Shaky Records). Once again teaming up with Portland’s notable producer, Jeff Saltzman (Stephen Malkmus, The Minders, Carmina Piranha, The Standard), this one is bigger, faster, harder, and perhaps a little more bent. FTP features fifteen tracks including early favorites, “Burn Baby Burn”, “Beaver State”, “It’s Not Like I’m a Cat”, and “Ten Miles High.”

Released: 2002
