Whisper Scream (take 3)
boygenuis: After listening to this on repeat a bunch, I think I can find a place for this in my collection.

Less is more and this the most. More than enough to Feature.

Remembering Hawaiian slack key afternoons on the beach, plucking and sucking up the Bud Light.

Dexie's Midnight plumbers gather for an afternoon pool party. Good enough to Feature but it didn't really ever get my blood pumping. Sort of felt like a some kind of dance that endless carries your around in a wide circle.

Blessed silence. Can any man's music be more eloquently rendered? Feature this softly spoken statement.

Perhaps these particular horses are gay in the indulgence of this particular brand of bedroom peccadilly-dally-o's. Feature? Naaaaaaaah, I say. While this is far and away
the best track you have posted here-having at least made some modest effort, nothing elevates it beyond what would barely make Second Stage.
The Faces of Money-(Rough sketch)

Wouldn't it be cool to cut this on 78 vinyl and then play it back on a kid's record player during a power storm with brownouts on the AC-rerecording the result with the ambient wind sounds? Jon's work inspires such flights of fancy.

Well, we did toy with the idea of singing in Armenian, but thought some of the subtle nuance would be lost. We aren't exactly an ambient System of a Down.

There is a a whole school of a similar guitar style in Hawaii called slack key. Many of the songs are simply guitar duets with ringing open tunings. Laid back doesn't begin to describe the vibe, but spend a few years on the beach there and it begins to acquire a profound resonance.

This is getting a drenched in reverb 1980's era 4AD label kind of sound now. Just a tiny touch of darkness. The dodgy vocal fits this rather nicely now, when it kind of nagged in some of the other Angie songs I heard here. I think you have found pay dirt.

Pony girl porn fanciers agree, Butthole Surfers, you ain't. Do try to make an effort if your are going post something here.

Schizophrenic Southern Psych rawk? Why not Feature this strange bird?

Southern rawk flavored romp might make a good tune for driving summer country roads with the windows down, a PBR between your legs and Darlene pulling her halter top off in the passenger seat. Who could ask for more?

Ivor Cutler meets Toms Waits for free verse poetry slam with piano accompaniment while Fred Frith generates found sounds. I think Jonathan is doing really interesting work that is fundamentally original, but invokes a familiar memory of other eclectic artists. Feature bait.

Well played and recorded. Sort of reminds me of the out of left field, pop humor of
XTC. I would Feature without reservation.
