JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #435.37!
I Hate Sally – The Plague (db) :: Will they be upset
that I call them a thermosonic cross between Pantera and Cradle Of Filth? Not if they’re smart, they won’t.
Aframes – Black
Forest (Sub Pop) :: Q: Are they not Devo Cramps B-52’s? A: They are Devo Cramps B-52s!
Antigone Rising – From The Ground Up
(Lava) :: With their big brains and vivacious voices, these five bodacious babes are the MENSA version of female acoustic
Someplace Closer To Here (FourFiveSix) :: The insight and power of Nirvana without any of the bitter bile. Where
dreamy techno ambience meets the heart and soul of rock ’n’ roll.
Mahi Mahi – Remove Your Body (Corleone) :: Yet another
Telex-worshipping duo with absolutely no songwriting ability is caught raw-handed doing the bedroom synthesizer wank. Kids,
squeezing out runny dribbles of disco bleeps and blorps will only make you go deaf.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Frausdots – Couture, Couture,
Couture (Sub Pop) :: Brent “I don’t feel cool, just a little bit cold” Rademaker suits up like Bowie
on the back of Pinups and then proceeds to follow through on that sly nod by recording an album that’s the best glam
rock record since the Everyothers’ dynamic debut.
Be seeing you!
