With Shara Worden’s band, it’s all about the sense of unreality and wonder they create, and mercifully the collaborators have sense enough to mine this rich seam
Sweet is incredibly reminiscent of Sonic Youth with its screeched choruses and slightly off kilter sonic arrangements whereas Hollywood Whore doesn’t leave much to the imagination and doesn’t get over-subtle in its condemnation.
If you don’t like trumpets, then avoid. Having said that, if you like things a little off the beaten track then I’d recommend this; despite the odd jazzy moment…
And whilst they’re not the best band in the world (for the simple reason that there’s no such thing) they are a fantastically good one and one that will soon have to make a very important decision – how big a band do they want to be?
It’s an album of warmth and simplicity, made up of beautiful melodies and shimmering drones (indeed, one imagines that the Buddha Machine could have been used for parts of it)
It would be tempting to see this album as something of a stopgap – something to tide us over till the main event. But that would be a mistake – Person Pitch is a cracking album in its own right.
Elsewhere in the song the priapic hero drinks panther piss and does terrible things to your good lady wife.
