Colin Meloy sings Morrissey...

OK I just need 5 people to go in on it with me, and then it might be worthwhile. We could "share". :)

I know you don't steal music, but if you would like to preview the songs you can go here.

In that case I'd wait for the five-friends-chipping-in option, because it will probably be TG before I see you! Although I'd be happy to share, then.

If you want a review... hmm. It's like an experiment in earnestness! The songs have all the snark stripped out of them and they're just reduced to their creepy essence. It's all acoustic guitar accompaniment and nothing else. The version of "Pregnant For the Last Time" is actually excellent, and "Everyday is Like Sunday" isn't half bad either. I'm not too familiar with the originals, but I have to say, I'd actually buy this EP.

I guess the best I can do to sum it up is, remember how you (theoretically) used to feel about Morrissey when you were in high school, and accepted his ennui at face value instead of ironically? Well, maybe not, but if you can picture it, this album's kinda like that.

i never stopped feeling that way about morrissey. HEE!

but my real worry is whether he sounds EVEN MORE WHINY. i should write up a list of all the whiny indie songsters that if listened to back to back bore a hole in your brain out of which leaks all compassion.

Well, I was using the hypothetical "you", because I didn't listen to anything either whiny or earnest until I was well into my 20s. I was a perversely, relentlessly chipper funk and ska fan as a teenager.

Also, check your email. ;)

Yea, I guess it would probably be the quickest way to get me to leave a room.
