MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #732.462.71!
Dozer – 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
Dozer – Through The Eyes Of Heathens (Small
Stone) :: Bull! Dozer! Bulldozer! I almost had a gag there, son! Joke, that is...
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.
Be seeing you!
