Album Review

It's easy to see why members of the now-defunct Morphine joined Bourbon Princess (featuring singer/bass player Monique Ortiz). Her music is eerily reminiscent of Morphine, whose lead singer/bassist Mark Sandman died of a heart attack. Ortiz's bass playing is up front with the occasional trickle of sax (courtesy Dana Colley, formerly of Morphine and producer of "Black Feather Wings") and dobro. The album Black Feather Wings is moody, but Ortiz keeps her dry sense of humor in check: in the sprightly "I'll Take a Cab," she sings, "You seedy, tired piece of trash/Trying to get my sympathy/Yeah, maybe if I feel bad enough I'll drop down and give you some/Yeah, right." The slow drawl of "Early Train" tells of a tryst that is, in afterthought, uncomfortable: "My panties stuffed in my coat/I fumble for some change/I really don't remember much/But I know I feel quite strange." Morphine fans mourning the loss of Sandman should give this a spin.
