“Disgusting… Enraging!! …Explorative… Delusional… Amazing!!… Artificial… Hard-Fought!!… uh… You gonna get that money, bitch!! …”
… sorry for my exuberance, just then …
um, I’m very impressed by Jared’s work. Sometimes others aren’t, for some ‘unknown-to-me’ reason.
I try to make people laugh, sometimes in a confusing way. I’m not politically calculating, unfortunately, quite the opposite. But, I am biased in my opinion here and there, and I am so here because when we were in William Penn High-School together, THIS GUY WAS MY like drag-MOTHER, but for MUSIC, and also because objectively: He always played guitars and other instruments way better than everyone else, he always thought more, read more, wrote more, and felt more strongly, whatever that is worth (;|). He was into synths because Dr. Dre was into synths. He always practiced writing and music skills, and taught this kinda stuff to at least one person, me. Not how to play guitar, I still suck at that, but even better… how to listen, how to compose, how to give myself a musical mind, how to give myself a mental arena to play in, a focus on the beat of the movement of the brain of a human-fucking-being, like a child naturally does. How to give a shit about something, and how to have enormous laughs. He’s a real-ass-heart-feeler. Eneeway… That’s love amongst friends, I guess. No Homo.
I started this review with a few maybe provocative words. I’ll end it with these: “Who Cares?” Listen to /Black Dick/ (sic) if you have a breath of life left, America. Here’s to y’all!
official review by Craig Dempsey __CLLD
The New Jared Morris album of Original Digital Music for 2017. After a string of acoustic CDs to clear out his back catalog of songs and pay off a few gambling debts, Morris has once again teamed up with producer The Sexfinger to explore the darker sides of music and his soul. Morris described it as a love letter never sent to his past collaborators and lovers.
The first Jared Morris to contain all original compositions since 2015’s “Start Начало 开始 開始 प्रारंभ” – Morris and Finger created these sonic experiences using very few live instruments, although you’ll hear the stray electric guitar lead and acoustic drum kit, the music’s backdrop is one of dripping and dropping digital waterfalls. The songs themselves range from tender to absurd and offer a clear indication that Morris and Finger have been very active with new ideas.
One interesting collaboration sees Morris returning to his High School years and recreating a piece from his youth with hometown alumni Craig Dempsey, using Dempsey’s own “Don’t Hold Your Breath for a Miracle” as the backdrop. When Finger reached out to Dempsey he was told an affirmative “go create something!” Another such collaboration is with Dover rapper “Money Mag” on “Black Dictum” – Where Mag and Morris opine on what it means to “pay your dues” with Sexfinger providing a warped out funk hop beat.
Like My Version of It’s “Time For Noisy USA” before it, “Black Dictum” takes on life in America in the 21st century. Even the title is a nod to Americana. British Admiral Richard “Black Dick” Howe and his brother helped shape the Development of Early America – The American Revolution is a recurring theme on the album.
Other themes consist of sex, space, pills and the death of Prince.
