Product Notes

I don't know whether Cortez fits into the postrock category; imagine Chris Isaak taking the mic right after he's chugged a couple of bottles of cough syrup; with a little imagination, you can see this CD as a musical portrait of the gothic backwoods mischief a bunch of 'archetypical cajuns' who spend many long nights drinking everclear and listening to albums by the American Music Club. Gothic content not withstanding, what makes the whole shockabilly approach work is that our skewed singer is relating tales that come from the hard living of real life. Departures from the default sound include 'sea of sound', an upbeat powerpop number with lyrical hooks that could have come straight off a 1980's SUB-POP record. Excerpts from Brad Goins review in Lagniappe magazine of: 'YOU DID THIS TO YOURSELF'
