JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #444.47!
Bobby Love – Rare Herbs (Funky Delicacies) :: The freakalicious
flute king of New Orleans funk is back on track to cream the scene clean with this musky collection of vintage tracks from
1974 that’ll have your gal dropping down to play one too.
Towers Of London – Towers Of London (TVT) :: Memo to publicity: The next time you mail
out a press package, remember to put a copy of the record in the envelope. No wonder Reznor left.
Silverstein – Discovering The Waterfront
(Victory) :: “My Heroine.” Worst drug song ever.
Erin McKeown – We Will Become Like Birds (Nettwerk) :: There’s a gag here somewhere
about one in the hand or two in the bush, but I’ll be gosh darned if I can find it.
A.R.E. Weapons – Free In The Streets
(Defend) :: Synthesized grandeur with a bombastic basting, this would be the result if INXS hired Jim Morrison.
Hermon Hitson – You Are Too Much For The Human
Heart (Soul Tay Shus) :: If you’d like to hear one of the most stirring voices in the history of soul, then pick
up this exemplary testimonial that was recorded between 1961 and 1970.
Jerry Lewis – Jerry Lewis Sings! (Decca) :: Schlock-a-bye your baby.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Wolf Parade – Wolf
Parade (Sub Pop) :: “Shine A Light” lifts its title from Exile On Main St. and its opening riff
from “Get Back.” Then Sam Kinison joins Pere Ubu for a vocal rave-up on “You Are a Runner And I Am My Father’s
Son.” But the kicker is “Disco Sheets,” which is about as close to a Number One In Heaven outtake
as you’re likely to get at this late date.
Be seeing you!
