Melvins Buzz Osborne of The Melvins has announced his first solo LP, This Machine Kills Artists. The album follows an EP of the same name from earlier this year, and shares a few tracks with the release. Osborne previously released the King Buzzo EP in 1992. The new album will feature Osborne playing acoustic compositions. Though, in a release, he stated:
"I have no interest in sounding like a crappy version of James Taylor or a half-assed version of Woody Guthrie, which is what happens when almost every rock and roller straps on an acoustic guitar. No thanks... This Machine Kills Artists is a different kind of animal."

The album will be out June 3 via Ipecac Recordings. The lead single, "Dark Brown Teeth," which was also on the EP, is available at Rolling Stone.
