JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #462.71!
- Through The Eyes Of Heathens (Small Stone) :: I anticipated a side order of screamo but got a heapin' helpin' of
bone-pulverizing thud rock instead. And because I do love my thud rock, that's no bull.
David Bowie - Heathen (Columbia) :: Every time I revisit this album expecting to be sorely disappointed, I always come away pleasantly
surprised by its emotional depth and maturity. Which says less about how good an album it is than it does about my inexplicable
ongoing utter lack of faith in it.
Brian Byrne - tuesdays, thursdays and if it rains (Kindling)
:: I'm not saying that this uplifting album was influenced by Mick Ronson or anything, but it sure sounds like it to me. Not
that it matters because I'll take my uplifting music anywhere I can find it.
Potvin - The Way It Feels (Alert) :: Lissome lungs and horny horns provide a percolating pulse that's part blues, part R&B soul and all
heartfelt passion. WARNING: Playing this album may set off your stroke detector
Dozer - Through The Eyes Of Heathens (Small Stone) :: Bull! Dozer! Bulldozer! I almost had a gag there, son! Joke, that is...
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: David Wall - The
Spell I Was Under (Black Hen) :: Ellis Hooks once recorded the best early Rolling Stones
album that the Stones never recorded. Now it's David Wall who's tapped an Exile On Main
St. vein and come up with a soulful blues album that's well worth hearing if only to
dig the latent Leon Russell gospel vibe and background bleatin' country honkin' babes.
