JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #438


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!
