Johnny Dowd: Temporary Shelter
Buy! - (Koch)
The third album from this Ithaca, NY native may be even more bizarre than its predecessors. Dowd's lyrics are as creepy as ever, and the music is getting closer to matching them. Moving farther away from the lo-fi Americana of his debut, it's an unholy combination of spooky organ, menacing guitar chords, a variety of cool percussion effects, and Johnny's quavery vocals alternating with Kim Sherwood-Caso's detached singing. 2/15/2001 - Don Yates
