What KFJC has added to their library and why...

Soeza – “Founded By Sportsmen & Outlaws” – [Prohibited Records]

Bristol septet, brash swaggery pop. Uplift mofo
horns party! And the horns are a quite sprite
French Horn (Daniel Cornfield) and Cornet (Aaron
Dewey). Sassy male/female vocals. Jenny Robinson
is the breathy, semi-sultry syllable stretcher
while Aaron Dewey is the “Speaker’s Corner” more
excitable ranter!! *Two* drummers in this…so
their sound has plenty o punch. Part of the UK’s
‘Pull the Strings’ collective. Horns kinda add
a Doc Severinsen dosed at the horse races amped
up vibe here that makes this pretty irresitable.
#11 is fancy phone freakout that tracks into the
closer. #9 is the slow dance. Right honorable
and simply smashing! -The Viceroy of Vice

  • Munly, Jay “Jimmy Carter Syndrome” [Smooch]

    Well-constructed dilapidation. Gravel in the
    gullet vox of Jay Munly (from Slim Cessna’s
    Auto Club). Ballads with ballast, a weight
    that is lifted by a shoestring quartet (that
    being Tarantella cloaked in shadow and soot).
    Munly’s voice rises with an angsty twinge of
    twang almost gets to a Gene Loves Jezebel
    screech at odd moments. Songs of heresy and
    fallen heroes, of people like Gerry Cooney
    and Weegee, that Powers of Celebrity try to
    pretend never supped at the popular table.
    Like a barn in Faulkner story… every song
    is ready to catch fire. Slow fuses throughout,
    rocking chair rhythms. Has the acrid flavor
    of moonshine with plenty of kick that catches
    up to you long after you have imbibed the
    lyrics. Perfect for that Belladonna/Joe Ed
    team show! Gothic chamber country rides on….
    -Johnny Palerider
