Doris, Delilah and zippy are hanging out front today. Doris is sporting the much needed Terra cloth fabric to absorb the sweaty humid day. Those songs and the Guadalcanal Diary-like jangle-rocker "Something Happened Today" ended up re-recorded in far superior versions on Velvet Elvis' self-titled release on Enigma. The country tinge of songs like "All the Girls in Town" sounds less like an integral part of the group's sound than a rather calculated attempt to hop the roots rock bandwagon on its way out of town.
Velvet Elvis would do much better with their second album. Guitarist Dan Trisko's lead vocals are far more self-assured, and the songs mostly Trisko's, although keyboardist Jeff Yurkowski and bassist Scott Stoess contribute the excellent, moody ballad "This Could Be" are equally up to scratch.
Mitch Easter's typically excellent production de-emphasizes the country touches of the debut, though the occasional twang peeks through, as on the Beat Rodeo-like country-rocker "Something Better. Unfortunately, however, as thoroughly appealing and unfailingly pleasant as this music is, there's a certain facelessness to the whole affair that makes it difficult to remember much about the album after it's over.
Only the opening "When It Comes" and a superior re-recording of the first album's title track really stand out as particularly memorable tunes.View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the Vinyl release of Velvet Elvis on Discogs.
