MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #689.409.10!
The Who –
The Who Sell Out (Decca) :: Automobile commercials. Hewlett-Packard commercials. The CSI franchise. And you thought
they were just being ironic.
Clan – Greatest Hits (BMG) :: Bill Cosby is right.
O.D.B. – O.D.B. (Roc-A-Fella) :: D.O.A.
Wolf Eyes – Burned Mind (Sub
Pop) :: Vicious, you hit me with this neural nullifying slice of neurotic electronica from Ann Arbor.
AM – Francophiles & Skinny Ties
(AM Mayhem) :: Not since the legendary Masked Marauders waxed “I Can’t Get No Nookie” has there been such
a fun-filled send-up of the early Rolling Stones.
Correia – Lakeville (Nettwerk) & Tom McRae – Just Like
Blood (Nettwerk) :: These two stunning new albums of thoughtfully intelligent pop music will renew your flagging faith
in the lost art of emotive singing and insightful songwriting.
Anavana – Anavana (Zip) :: Part sassy Debby Harry and part sultry
Sade, funky is the word for this debut disc by chameleonic pop singer Annastasia Victory Kuporosova and her reggae-tinged
Set Yourself On Fire (Arts & Crafts) :: Ignore the inane title because you won’t find a more delightfully
ethereal pop album to play this winter while you’re dashing through the snow.
Feverdream – Freeze (Coalition) :: “Shake hands with my
johnson,” sings René van Lien of the Netherlands. “Do you know what it feels like to be that hung?”
No, but if you wait here a moment, I’ll go get a rope so you can tell me.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE MONTH: The Gun Club – The Las Vegas Story
(Sympathy For The Record Industry) :: Remastered and reissued. Discordant and disconcerting. Off-key and off-kilter. Haunting
and harrowing. Sardonic and psychotronic. A grievous mistake and a genuine masterpiece.
Be seeing you!
