JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #454.56!
Styx – The Complete Wooden Nickel Recordings (Hip-O) :: File Under: Don’t Take
Logh – A
Sunset Panorama (Hydra Head) :: This quartet starts off with a koda intro and concludes with a primo screamo coda.
Metric – Live
It Out (Last Gang) :: Girls ’n’ guitars will always be my number one fave rave and this edgy ethereal euro
syntho sonic assault reminds me why, big time.
Honeyhander – Wooly Mannerisms (SAF) :: Smootho ’90s Duran Duran fused with distorto
’90s Marilyn Manson—and it works!
Seventeen Evergreen – Life Embarrasses Me On Planet Earth (Pacific Radio Fire) :: Leonard
Cohen may be broke, but his influence lives on in this excellent album. Or is that Unca Lou?
Altamont – The Monkees’ Uncle (Ant Acid
Audio) :: This band called Altamont is more fun than a front row seat at Dick James’ speedway so don’t be played
for a dupe, stupe. Pool cue not included.
– No Guts, No Gravy (Unsound) :: Hanner is Johanna Wright and Johanna Wright is what
Joan Baez would have sounded like if Joanie had been on the back of that bike without a helmet when Zimmer crashed—which
is a very good thing indeed.
New England Roses
– Face Time With Son (Dogg Pony) :: And this set of wonkie tunes would’ve been recorded if a helmetless
Peter, Paul & Mary had been on the back, too.
Tera Melos – Tera Melos (Springman) :: Very adept stutter-steps that splatter all over
the instrumental electro jazz bop canvas from here to Ornette.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Sharking – The Sharking (202 Lions) :: Get outta
that cage and dig the ragged jagged beat, the pure pop pulse, the Costello vocals, and the Enossififed snake guitars!
Be seeing you!
