MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #699.423.24!
John Cale &
Lou Reed – Songs For Drella (Sire) :: Everything they’ve done separately, no matter
how good, is mere artifice compared to this sincere, monumental work of art. When’s the last time you listened
The Sharp Ease
– Going Modern (olFactory) :: Meanwhile, if Cale and Lene Lovich had sired quadruplet daughters 25 years ago,
those four femmes would’ve grown up to record this smart ’n’ sassy pop album.
Tara Angell – Down And Out: The Come
Down EP (Rykodisc) :: Hide the razorblades because if ever a record lived up to its title, it’s this one. This
dour dish makes Marianne Faithfull sound like Toni Basil cranked to the gills on a helium speedball.
Josh Rouse – Nashville (Rykodisc)
:: Maybe the Ryman Auditorium isn’t ready for a guy who sings lyrics like: “Later on, after the show, we can go
to your room, I can try on your clothes.”
Cash – “A Boy Named Sue” (Columbia) :: Then again, maybe it is.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Devlins –
Waves (Nettwerk) :: Having survived the trauma of Chas being killed by Harry Flowers, the two remaining brothers
buck up and record this fine album. I like that, turn it up.
Be seeing you!
