I was surprised and delighted to hear the latest from Skrill Meadow, the one-man band of Mark Morrison. Private Memories is an album of straight-up slow jams, albeit jams coming directly from one shitty tape machine to your ear. Despite his limitations, Morrison embodies the consummate frontman, reeking of sex and brimming with confidence, even if it may be buried beneath layers of tape hiss. "Double Back (Make it Nice)" is a bouncy bit of squelching, synth-y soul that could inspire a dance floor of unbelievers to shake their asses. It's an album full of the lo-fi stank of Ween and Beck.
