Big Walnuts Yonder

If you’ve heard the Culture Creature podcast interview with Mike Watt, then you know that Watt is the sweetest and most lovable bass guitar man on God’s green Earth. Today, Watt’s back with a new band, the charmingly titled Big Walnuts Yonder, which also features Nels Cline (Wilco, Nels Cline Singers), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and Nick Reinhart (Tera Melos).

Watt told Consequence of Sound that Big Walnuts Yonder is the sound of “worlds colliding” and “combines elements of “proto-punk, free jazz, power pop, experimental music, psych-rock and your first teenage acid trip all in one.” The band’s self-titled debut is due May 5th via Sargent House.

Listen to Big Walnuts Yonder’s debut song, ‘Raise the Drawbridges?’ here:
