NO EM NRUT JEFFREY MORGAN’S
MEDIA BLACKOUT #345!
Music From Another Dimension! (Columbia) :: And you thought srorriM htiW enoD had a lousy album cover.
Waves Of Fury – Thirst (Alive Natural
Sound) :: After you’re done admiring the pseudo early Vaughn Bodé front cover art, flip it over
and you’re faced with an impressive array of evocative ’70s sounding song titles which range in sage from “Businessman’s
Guide To Witchcraft” and “Pretender Soul” to “Viodrene” and “The Everlasting Thirst.”
Then slit the shrink and let their seditious sonics slake your senses with equal aural aplomb.
Aerosmith – Music From Another Dimension! (Columbia) :: And you thought
Nine Lives had a lousy album cover.
– Sad Songs Make Me Happy (self released) :: It doesn’t happen often, but once in a very long
while an album comes along that’s so reflectively relaxing and transcendently calm it makes you wonder where it’s
been all your life. Well, this is one of those records. Cindy’s sensitive singing creates a tranquil tableau that conceptually
compliments and accurately reflects the quiet peacefulness of the sparse instrumental accompaniment—and both are easily
as elegant as its album cover design and similarly as stylish as its accompanying portrait of the artist as an artiste.
Aerosmith – Music From Another Dimension!
(Columbia) :: And you thought Just Push Play had a lousy album cover.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Buffalo Killers & Lee Bains III And The Glory Fires & Brian
Olive & Radio Moscow & Left Lane Cruiser & John The
Conqueror & Henry’s Funeral Shoe – Alive At The Deep Blues Fest: Recorded
Live In Bayport, MN June 29 - July 1 2012 (Alive Natural Sound) :: Not since Woodstock’s most raucously
recorded sludgefest moments have I heard such a deliriously raw recitation of down ’n’ dirty skuzztone blooze,
the likes of which you hardly hear anymore. That’s why you owe it to yourself to scoff a copy and crank it up
until your delicate little shell-like ears remind you why you allowed yourself to get picked up and seduced by this kind of
hard rockin’ harlot in the first place.
– Music From Another Dimension! (Columbia) :: And you thought Honkin’ On Bobo had a lousy album
