The Peculiar Pretzelmen perform in-studio at WBEZ in Chicago

The Peculiar Pretzelmen perform in-studio this morning on WBEZ in Chicago!

The slightly sinister sounds of the Peculiar Pretzelmen: In the dark corners of a smoke-filled bar live the Peculiar Pretzelmen. Part Tom Waits, part Zydeco, the Pretzelmen provide fun and fright all in the span of a single song.

The South Bend Tribune interviews The Peculiar Pretzelmen

The South Bend Tribune interviews The Peculiar Pretzelmen in advance of their tour date. Here’s an excerpt on why they build their own instruments:

“You can’t walk into Guitar Center and ask them if they have something that sounds like a robot’s heart exploding. They’ll say, “We have these drum machines.’ No, no, no. I want a bicycle wheel!”

The Peculiar Pretzelmen in Rochester City Newspaper

Rochester City Newspaper features The Peculiar Pretzelmen show:

The Peculiar Pretzelmen is the sort of band that you could imagine drinking absinthe or traveling along the bowels of the carny circuit with. The LA-based duo draws its musical influences from Depression-era barn-burning blues, throwing in an edgy punk ethos. The Peculiar Pretzelmen churns out the devil’s blues as competently as Elmore Leonard cranked out “Pulp Fiction.”…The Peculiar Pretzelmen invokes images of “Murder Ballads”-era Nick Cave or Tom Waits inside a speigeltent. The pair infuses minimalist primal energy into its tunes and makes an occasionally stale genre sound gothic and spooky.

The Peculiar Pretzelmen article in The Kingston Times

Kingston Times interviews The Peculiar Pretzelmen in advance of their stop at The Anchor during their fall tour. Here is an excerpt:

“There is no well-tread path that actually gets you anywhere. Get the machete, hit the jungle and walk towards something that smells good…We’re living on the road banging drums and hollering for dollars hoping for the crowd to decode some of our signal. We are always reaching into every nook and cranny of this country. We won’t stop ’til our voodoo is on every frequency in every dimension.”
