JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #455

JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #455.57!

Thine Eyes Bleed
In The Wake Of Separation (The End) :: Mine ears bleed.

Wolf Parade
Apologies To Queen Mary (Sub Pop) :: What if Bowie and Ronson had recorded Hunky Dory while stewed to the gills on a case of scotch?

The Dead Science
Frost Giant (Absolutely Kosher) :: Nasty canasta Mexicano melodies merged with woozy wasted wastrel wails.

Detonation
Portals To Uphobia (Osmose Productions) :: Prog metal? I dunno, but it’s amazing how palatable screamo vocals can be when they’re shored up by solid production and a relentless brace of burgeoning bludgeoning beats.

Aaron Lines
Waitin’ On The Wonderful (BMG) :: He may strike a Paddy Smiff meets Zimmer pose on the inner tray photo, but he sure sings like the sincere second coming of classic country.

Epoch Of Unlight
The Continuum Hypothesis (The End) :: Gosh, I miss The Obsessed.

Agents Of The Sun
Monarchs Of A Fallen Society (DCide) :: What at first blush appears to be the usual slapdash hodgepodge of generic angst pop is quickly quelled by the swirling dashes of Kirk Hammett guitar work.

ABSU
Mythological Occult Metal 1991-2001 (Osmose Productions) :: And then this compilation of feelth metal’s greatest grates and rarest wracks comes along to show everyone where it began and who to blame.

SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Chromelodeon
Heart Of Sawdust (Bloodlink) :: Any band that names itself after an obscure Harry Partch work gets my vote right off the bat—especially when they title their six songs an economically minimal “One” through “Six.” But when all six are prog rock instrumentals á la Nash The Slash, well, when I say I’m in love, you best believe I’m in love, l-u-v.

Be seeing you!
