Certain Songs #1472: Paul Westerberg – “Crackle & Drag (Original Take)”

Album: Come Feel Me Tremble
Year: 2003

After the relative sonic unity of Stereo / Mono, or even the major label albums, Come Feel Me Tremble was a bit of a hodgepodge, alternating fuzzed-out ravers like the 6:00 “Pine Box” with lush, acoustic songs like “Meet Me Down in The Alley.”

It was like Paul couldn’t quite figure out in which direction he wanted to go in, so decided “both!” And yeah, this has always been part and parcel of his music, but on no record since Hootenanny! was it so all over the map.
