Diamond Rugs – Voodoo Doll

John Macauley is a strange guy — a sort of throwback trainwreck of a lead singer. He jumps off stages, occasionally performs at least half-drunk, and yells and howls like a crazy person.

His main band is called Deer Tick, and his scuzzy-rock side project is called Diamond Rugs. (Say it slowly and you’ll get the pun.)

Their second album, Cosmetics, was released a couple weeks ago. You can preview and purchase it here.

The first song on the album is below. It’s not often you find yourself thinking, “Man, the baritone sax really makes this song great.” But alas, here you have it.

RIYL: Deer Tick, good music, bar fights, liquor that comes in plastic bottles
