This is the 2nd song that I’m posting from the new Puscifer album Money Shot. ‘The Remedy’ was not one of my favourite tracks initially, but somehow the music kind of opened up and started to breathe a little more when I watched the music video for it. Each instrument suddenly sounded a lot more clear and poignant, and I suddenly noticed that beautiful little interlude at the 1:45 mark.
It’s impossible not to draw parallels with the music and video for ‘Judith’ by A Perfect Circle (another band fronted by Maynard James Keenan), which is definitely a good thing.
Also I have to say there’s something deeply satifying about hearing MJK belt out the lyrics :
“You speak like someone who has never been
Smacked in the fucking mouth
That’s OK, we have the remedy
You speak like someone who has never been
Knocked the fuck on out
But we have your remedy”
