MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #716.443.46!
The Amino Acids – Destroy The
Warming Sun! (Bowlophonic) :: And you thought Apple was a stupid name for a record label.
Ribeye Brothers – Bar Ballads And Cautionary Tales (Times Beach) :: They pump a hot Farfisa
and aren’t afraid to quote Roberto Duran screaming “No mas! No mas!” This just might be the boozy band Jim
Morrison would’ve formed had he gotten out of that tub in Paris.
– Building The Bass Castle, Volume 1 (Flameshovel) :: Spastic and sporadic retarded guitar instrumentals that
are fretfully confused and prone to wandering.
Demander – Demander (Triplicate)
:: Now here’s an album that just reeks of strident fem attitude—which I guess is to be expected given that some
of the band members have played in the company of Nancy Sinatra. But don’t be misled because their punky pop boots are
made for stalkin’ and one of these days, well, you know.
High On Fire
– Blessed Black Wings (Relapse) :: As you might hope, producer Steve “Skinng” Albini gets a ferocious
sound out of these guys. Then the guitarist, who can’t sing a note to save his life, has to go and ruin everything by
opening his mouth.
Motörhead – Orgasmatron (GWR) :: Not that
I have anything against guys who can’t sing opening their mouths, mind you.
Xiu – Sings The Cole Porter Songbook (5RC) :: Then again...
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Aminio Acids – Destroy The Warming Sun! (Bowlophonic) :: Stop
me if you’ve heard this one before, but this “Telstar” meets “Out of Limits” sonic sliver fuses
a holy-cow campabilly cornball aesthetic with a lowbrow thrashabilly scrounge mentality. It’s got a bleat, you can sheep
to it; I give it a Sven.
Be shearing you!
