We generally keep these posts on the short end, owing to the fact that the track is right there for everyone to listen to and form their own judgments, much as you did. Plus we ran a review of this album last month, with a little more space for description.
Anyway, nice work. Once you learn to spell words like "timbre," send your clips along and maybe we'll hire you.
@Richard: I'm sure Mr. Twitty could explain better, but my understanding is that both hot peppers and peanuts came from South America/the Caribbean originally, were brought back to Europe by the Spanish, and spread to Africa years before North America was colonized. They were in regular use there before they came to North America with African slaves. African slaves being taken to North America in the 18th and 19th centuries would've been used to peanuts and hot peppers, as they'd been in West African for generations by that point.
Yeahhhhh, that song's OK. That "Secret Smile" song straight-up sucks, though, and I think it was the second single from the album, wasn't it? NOT FEELIN' IT, PETE.
Eric Yeschke (of Expensive $hit, Raw Blow, etc.) recorded this record at The Nerve and did a wonderful job doing so!
Gladly -- thanks for reading!
You'll note that I've added an update at the top as of 4 p.m. on Jan. 16 -- Misra explained that Paste got multiple copies of the album, but it sounds like the one that ended up in Ms. Grimm's hands was the out-of-order one. Either way, it appears Misra removed the emailed rant from its website.
This is a sidebar to a longer piece. The longer piece is linked to at the beginning, where it says "see our companion piece."
Since there were two comments, I flipped a coin -- heads was Mike, tails was JD. Tails came up, so I'll be sending you an email, JD! Congrats!
Thanks for playing along, all ... two of you! :)
