NOTES
Jay (dogbrain) Ward’s “Nest” wasn’t cut with a cookie cutter and won’t fit into a pigeon hole. Chances are about 100% you won’t see him on “American Idol” performing My Reprieve (narrated calmly from the executioner’s chair). But, like a Boomerang, these very original, dark and funny songs and productions whirl and spin their way into your head, making the entire CD a satisfying listen from beginning to end.
From the funky urban slide blues of Drop Of Blood, Nasty and Judge & Jury to the jazz-hop of My Reprieve to the acoustic-electro dance of Wreck, Apt. 8 and Boomerang to the carnival-country pop of Whirligig and Catahoula, dogbrain delivers an interlocking “Nest” of songs in the Dogbrain Oriented Alternative (DOA) style. Like a demented tailor building a wardrobe for an eccentric family, the common thread and stitching is what holds the unlikely fabrics and textures together. One size definitely does not fit all. The lonely man pretending his waitress loves him, the diabolical auctioneer delivering temptation and comfort, the ghosts in the back room singing along; they’re all hatched from the same “Nest”.
