JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #454


JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #454.56!

Styx
The Complete Wooden Nickel Recordings (Hip-O) :: File Under: Don’t Take Any.

Logh
A Sunset Panorama (Hydra Head) :: This quartet starts off with a koda intro and concludes with a primo screamo coda.

Metric
Live It Out (Last Gang) :: Girls ’n’ guitars will always be my number one fave rave and this edgy ethereal euro syntho sonic assault reminds me why, big time.

Honeyhander
Wooly Mannerisms (SAF) :: Smootho ’90s Duran Duran fused with distorto ’90s Marilyn Manson—and it works!


Seventeen Evergreen
Life Embarrasses Me On Planet Earth (Pacific Radio Fire) :: Leonard Cohen may be broke, but his influence lives on in this excellent album. Or is that Unca Lou?


Altamont
The Monkees’ Uncle (Ant Acid Audio) :: This band called Altamont is more fun than a front row seat at Dick James’ speedway so don’t be played for a dupe, stupe. Pool cue not included.

Hanner
No Guts, No Gravy (Unsound) :: Hanner is Johanna Wright and Johanna Wright is what Joan Baez would have sounded like if Joanie had been on the back of that bike without a helmet when Zimmer crashed—which is a very good thing indeed.

New England Roses
Face Time With Son (Dogg Pony) :: And this set of wonkie tunes would’ve been recorded if a helmetless Peter, Paul & Mary had been on the back, too.

Tera Melos
Tera Melos (Springman) :: Very adept stutter-steps that splatter all over the instrumental electro jazz bop canvas from here to Ornette.

SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Sharking
The Sharking (202 Lions) :: Get outta that cage and dig the ragged jagged beat, the pure pop pulse, the Costello vocals, and the Enossififed snake guitars!

Be seeing you!
