Don Caballero, Fred Weaver -
What would Metallica sound like if they had half a brain cell among them? Probably something like Don Caballero, a three-piece instrumental outfit from Pittsburgh that uses loud guitars to carefully construct ominous chunks of noise with a distinct sense of purpose. Although what that purpose may be is anyone's guess. But how can you not like a band with song titles like "A Lot of People Tell Me I Have a Fake British Accent" and "Let's Face It Pal, You Didn't Need That Eye Surgery?" Fred Weaver, on the other hand, creates a rather jarring effect with only an acoustic guitar. Cat's Cradle.
