Elena Andújar: Flamenco in Time

Elena Andújar: Flamenco in Time

On Elena Andujar’s new album, Flamenco in Time, modern-day Flamenco spirits listeners through 7 songs as well as much as it infuses this spectacular singer’s life. Beginning with the mid-tempo percussion bed, Bruce Gomez’s lead guitar as well as Ron Haynes’ trumpet up front with Elena, “Una Vez Mas” gets the ride going.

THE SEX FILES: Keeping My Eyes on Ms. Ava At Her Parlor

THE SEX FILES: Keeping My Eyes on Ms. Ava At Her Parlor

I happened to get a peek into some for real, shooting-right-in-front-of-me promo video and still-picture-taking of salacious content at Ms. Ava’s Parlor down in the much warmer climes of Florida over the weekend. You will remember the sexy, smart, all-but-perfect Ms. Ava when I interviewed her here a few months back (see here). She’s a lady who caters to crossdressers, sissies, and males who enjoy exploring various femme and bi fantasies. Gathering some talented and kinky people round to her place (and me to report on it) this Sunday afternoon last, Ms. Ava was attempting to get good pics and vids showing a little of what she does for use as promotional materials.

Neil Young & Promise of the Real: The Visitor

Neil Young & Promise of the Real: The Visitor

A stomping ragtaggle heavy power chord opener “Already Great” begins Neil Yong & Promise of the Real, second studio collaboration The Visitor. Young’s whine lends wonderfully to this song as much praising America as it is taking a satirical stab at the man who campaigned with a certain slogan the song takes its title from.

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Rest

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Rest

Produced with French electronic musician SebastiAn, Rest is Charlotte Gainsbourg’s first new album in six years and rather a great effort.

The Waterboys: Out Of All This Blue

The Waterboys: Out Of All This Blue

Where the Waterboys were at one time an Irish/Scottish folk/rock band, producing albums like the elegant This Is The Sea and Fisherman’s Blues, Mike Scott, the band’s leader, singer, songwriter, guitarist-although we can’t forget the instrumental genius of this band for just about ever, Steve Wickham, and Ralph Salmins on drums, and Paul Brown, keyboards, backing vocals-takes his band through nearly 30 tunes here of funk, disco and pop. Lyrically we are getting lots about love, Scott having recently married and having just had a child; so the man is happy, here it is.

#MeToo Makes Me #TooBlue

#MeToo Makes Me #TooBlue

#MeToo has pretty much taken over the cultural firmament. While nobody can deny the abuses happening-though they need to be proven before simply accepted as fact, no?-and this ‘interplay’ between hetero’s has been happening for many a year/decade/century/all throughout the evolution of the naked ape, I agree education and protection are surely needed to bolster us all against assault of any nature. But the minute you pause, say ‘but,’ cock your head to the side, even consider a slightly different or divergent pov-and dare you have a penis when you offer a moment of consideration-man, the shan do hit the old fit.

Cheap Trick: Christmas, Christmas

Cheap Trick: Christmas, Christmas

Along with Nielsen and Zander, original band member, bassist Tom Petersson (always an unsung hero of this band) rumbling the low end to perfect thickness, while ‘newer’ member, Daxx Nielsen (Rick’s kid) splashes and snaps above it all, Cheap Trick’s Christmas, Christmas is a sure winner. Wrap it up for the holiday.

Jools Holland And José Feliciano: As You See Me Now

Jools Holland And José Feliciano: As You See Me Now

Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra pretty much release music round this time of year, every year. This time the ex-Squeeze keyboardist/UK music-variety show host has teamed up with José Feliciano for this 14-song holiday treat, As You See Me Now.

THE SEX FILES: Hustler Tax Held

It seems one of our fair city’s appellate courts stayed fast to an earlier lower court decision that the Hustler Club in Manhattan is not exempt from sales tax. In the eyes of the law, erotic dancers are not performing “dramatic art performances,” of any kind and the clubs they are dancing in are unable to claim this particular exemption of artistic execution, and avoid the 4% sales tax.

Annie Lennox: Songs Of Mass Destruction

Annie Lennox: Songs Of Mass Destruction

You’re not getting through an Annie Lennox CD with a simple passing first listen. There is lots to her productions, songwriting and delivery; this lady is maticulous in what she presents. Songs Of Mass Destruction has lots to offer, so sit back, relax and use your brain a little bit, it’ll be good for you.
