Album Review

The fourth solo album from Slim Cessna's Auto Club's Jay Munly, Jimmy Carter Syndrome is hardly a departure from the brand of spooky alternative country common to both his cohorts and their kindred spirits in 16 Horsepower (both of whom have numerous members making cameos). With songs dotting nearly every point on the spooky spectrum of tangled backwoods eeriness, Munly drowns tales of broken spirits and violent encounters under whirling guitar reverb, foreboding cello, creepy autoharp, and a cacophony of ghoulish chorus singers. Whether recounting a surreal meeting with former boxing star Jerry Cooney (bizarrely paired with a bevy of early rock neologisms) on "Cooney Vs. Munly" or a gruesome childbirth on "The Denver Boot," Munly is an engaging storyteller with a properly tortured vocal style, though his shtick does seem to be somewhat predictable to a certain extent. At nearly 70 minutes, though, it's an ambitious project that offers more than a few rewards for those who like the darker side of quasi-folk. Overall, the kind of album that makes you never want to venture into rural America after dark.

Jay Munly- Jimmy Carter Syndrome

I was first introduced to Munly on his album with The Lee Lewis Harlots. That was and still is an unbelievably good album. This one would be my next fav out of his entire collection. An added bonus is the help on a few songs by Members of Wovenhand and 16 Horsepower and a few others. Also check out Slim Cessna's Auto club! I've seen him perform in these band a few times and can honestly say there one of the best bands to EVER see live, and I've been to and have ran many many shows.
