JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #438.41!
Daphne Loves Derby – On The Strength Of All Convinced
(Outlook) :: Tie your brother down! Freddie Mercury joins Wings!
Kraftwerk – Minimum-Maximum (EMI) :: What’s the speed limit on Information
Highway 69? Clickety-split.
The Hurt Process
– A Heartbeat Behind (Victory) :: Are you ready for the CSNY of screamo? Me neither.
The Pages – Creatures Of The Earth (Unsound)
:: Heads they’re an electric Kingston Trio, tails they’re a folkie Velvet Underground.
Jobriath – Creatures Of The Street (Elektra)
:: Even at his summer-camp swishiest he’s still heavier than Xiu “Yoo Hoo” Xiu.
Sybris – Sybris (Flameshovel) :: Take
a banana peel and throw it down the stairs! Siouxsie Sioux joins the Velvets!
Various Artists – Vans Warped Tour 2005 (Side One Dummy)
:: Two discs, 50 tracks, the tympanum-shredding price we have to pay for Monterey Pop.
The Evil Queens – First It Boils, Then It
Spills (Addison) :: Finally it hardens into this hot steamin’ slab of heavy molten rock.
Pointed Sticks – Perfect Youth (Sudden
Death) :: Whatever you do, make sure you don’t overlook this excellent reissue of infectious good-time new-wave power
pop from 1980.
The Number Twelve Looks Like
You – nuclear. sad. nuclear. (Eyeball) :: I’m not ready for flamenco screamo either.
Ulver – Blood
Inside (Jester) :: She’s giving me bad vibrations! Diamanda Galás joins the Beach Boys!
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Odiorne – Heavy
Wish (File 13) :: This echoing pop album begins by using the watery tremulous horns from “It’s Only A Northern
Song” and concludes by being the orchestral trance record that Yellow Submarine should’ve been.
Be seeing you!
