Press LOVES Sewn Together!

“Thank you Jesus for the Kirkwood brothers. Sewn Together is one of the top five best albums I’ve heard so far this year and more importantly, it is yet another step in The Meat Puppets’ journey of greatness.” – THE TRIPWIRE

“Sewn Together, which is a wonderfully satisfying work. Somehow, it all does get sewn together in a mix of styles that’s both head-spinning and earthily rocking.” – LA WEEKLY

“Sewn Together is reminiscent of the glory days of the Meat Puppets.” – FILTER

” 3 1/2 Stars… The interplay of Curt’s drowsy vocals and freaky guitar can still induce vertiginous spells — witness the dreamy yet insistent “Blanket of Weeds” — while the snappy “Love Mountain” reveals the clever pop craftsman behind his woozy persona.” – SPIN

“Sewn Together’s songs demonstrate that the once purveyors of grunge are still adept songwriters.” – AOL SPINNER

“The number of ingredients found in a Meat Puppets record is impressive, but the way the band blends those pieces is what’s truly astonishing. At its best, Arizona’s Meat Puppets makes you think there are no boundaries between punk, country, and pop. The appropriately named “Sewn Together” finds Curt Kirkwood and his brother Cris Kirkwood crafting mongrel music as fine as anything in the band’s catalog.” – BOSTON GLOBE

Everyone from Nirvana to Pavement to Stone Temple Pilots cite Meat Puppets as one of the most significant American bands.

The highly influential Meat Puppets started as a punk rock band, but established their own unique style, blending punk with country and psychedelic rock. Meat Puppets later gained significant exposure when the Kirkwood brothers served as guest musicians on Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance in 1993. The band’s subsequent album Too High to Die went gold, selling over 500,000 albums, and became their most successful release. The band reunited in 2006.

Recorded at The Saltmine in Phoenix, Arizona in winter 2009, the album features the Kirkwood brothers, Cris and Curt, with drummer Ted Marcus.
