It's been 11 years since the last time Primus released a studio album, but Les Claypool and his bandmates haven't lost any of their edge. "Hoinfodaman," the first track from the idiosyncratic avant-rock trio's new record Green Naugahyde, is a twitchy, shamelessly lewd number that emphasizes the band's most recognizable quirks – Claypool's plunging, filth-funk bass lines and his aggressively odd lyrics. "I used to be a pimp but now I'm hoin' for the man," he repeats, singing about selling out but sounding far too weird to really fit into the mainstream. Green Naugahyde will be in stores on September 13th, but you can stream "Hoinfodaman" now.
