John Vanderslice – Exodus Damage
You have to listen to John Vanderslice to believe just how wonderful it is, so I'll try not to overdo it with an overdone description of the overdoneness here. Just listen, okay? Okay.
Beautifully somber song. I guess the best I could characterize Bonnie Prince Billy's music is alternative folk. Contemplative, beautiful songs of loneliness and love and hardship.
Man Man is a great catchy, quirky band. The lead vocalist is a bit reminiscent of Tom Waits. This song is absurd, playful and mischievous. Perfect for drawing a moustache on your face. Or on your sleeping one night stand.
This track is moody, slinky and sexy with a dash of desperation. The track features Mike Patton of Faith No More and Mr Bungle as well as Jennifer Charles of Elysian Fields. I love it.
The music of Vincent Gallo feels a personal and fragile, as his films. I always feel like I'm peaking into his notebook when I'm listing to his recordings.
