MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #685.401.1!
Charles – Genius Loves Company (Concord) :: And modesty hates egomaniacs.
Last Of The Famous – The Music Or
The Misery (FourFiveSix) :: Make mine misery because these Clash City Poppers don’t rock my casaba.
Norman Brown – I Might (Warner
Bros.) :: Sexy, soulful old-school make-out music for tough guys who’d rather be inside bangin’ than outside gangin’.
The Hentchmen – Form Follows Function
(Times Beach) :: Funky reverb garage surf music with a Leigh Stephens fuzz-tone pedigree and cool black turtleneck lyrics
like: “I was only five when I saw the scene of that Charger versus Steve McQueen.”
Junior Boys – Last Exit (KIN/Domino)
:: Hall & Oates join Kraftwerk. File under: Outenzi Touchenzi.
Wyclef Jean – Welcome To Haiti: Creole 101 (Sak Pasé) ::
Those of you who don’t speak Spanish, Creole or French can look forward to Jean’s next album: Welcome To America:
– Everything I’ve Got In My Pocket (ZOE/Rounder) :: Hide the straight razor because this set of sad songs
is the best melancholy music since Sinatra’s Only The Lonely.
Janiva Magness – Bury Him At The Crossroads (Northern Blues) ::
On the prowl with a sexy growl, this blues-beltin’ babe provides the perfect yoni yang to Minnie’s yearning ying.
Elvis Costello – The Delivery Man
(Lost Highway) :: And you thought marriage would mellow him.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Briggs – Leaving The Ways (Side
One Dummy) :: Absolutely the best high-energy hybrid of the Clash and Metallica you’re likely to hear in many a moon
so go out and get it, got it?
