Payfone / Quarantine / Golf Channel

Test Pressing, Review, Dr Rob, Payphone, Quarantine, Golf Channel, Phil South, Padre Pray For Us, Louis Howard Jones, Eikel Venegas Hernandez

On “Quarantine” sequencers throw patterns that confuse the iconic House riffs of Patti (Day) and Jamie (Principle) while funky guitar, live bass and percussion go about their thang. A “Love To Love You” moan backs the strong Gospel-schooled voice of Louis Howard Jones as he recites an American poem, a New York poem, of drag queens and lives of trouble, a Paris burning. “Padre Pray For Us” puts Cuban Eikel Venegas Hernandez` “Masekela” brass over staccato keys, Latino rhythms and an “Egyptian Reggae” hook. The combination has Mulatu Astatke “Go Bang!”, tape capturing the shouts of encouragement from the crowd.
