Soul Coughing

El Oso

Slash/Warner Bros.

Time is passing very quickly for me these days. It seems just like yesterday that I was sitting in Home Park just off the Georgia Tech Campus listening to Soul Coughing’s Ruby Vroom. Now all of a sudden I find myself staring at El Oso trying frantically to figure out a way to get up north to catch a few of their shows in October, because I don’t think I can hang on long enough from them to make it down my way. All my friends kept telling me that Irresistible Bliss wasn’t worth the money, so I never bothered to buy it. Now, if El Oso is in anyway similar to Irresistible Bliss, then I am a total loser. This album is excellent. I can hear the growth that comes with any band, and quite frankly if this doesn’t gain the attention of every music rag on the planet I will be disappointed. Sassy, sexy, sultry, funky, and downright dancy as hell. Sorry I can’t write anymore. The liquor store around the corner seems to be empty except for one employee. Gotta go get me some spending money! Warner Brothers Records, 75 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10019
