MARSHALL KEITH: On: CD

Fourth solo record from the ex-Slickee Boys guitarist. The songwriting and arrangements seem to be brimming with confidence this time around. Keith handles almost all the instruments, with some assistance from drummer Brian Horrowitz (Date Bait) on a few of the songs. There’s quirky pop inside, with a Robyn Hitchcock influence felt rustling in the wind here and there. “Stuck without Glue,” “Super Human Strength,” and “Burnt Plane,” are some of my favorites on this platter. Why not take a chance on this? Your hat may be blown off your head by a thick blast of pink dust like the people on the back cover photo of this CD. You’re welcome.
