Bratwurst might seem to be just a haphazard amalgamation of noise, video clips and wet meat, but bandleader Tyler Scouton actually writes meticulous orchestration for each composition. The band transposes the movements to correspond with an array of instruments, including Scouton’s pre-recorded synthesizer parts, Brennan Atchison’s electronic drums, Jason Ratajek and Leon Rohrbaugh’s occasionally tuned guitars, and an assortment of sometimes working power tools complicit in the destruction of whatever meat scraps can be procured that evening. In addition to being the principal songwriter and vocalist, Scouton is also responsible for the orchestrated “dance” of the meat.
