Album Review: Mark Sultan, "$" by


Forget the Black Lips, forget even King Khan–Mark Sultan (aka The BBQ Show) is the unsung hero of the gritty garage-soul sound. This album, which deftly combines messy, distorted steel guitar sounds (straddling the same border between Jesus and Mary Chain + garage as The Raveonettes) with Sultan’s distinct, plaintive doo-wop wail, may be that sound’s best manifestation yet. This album sounds like finally making out with the best friend you’ve always had a crush on. PLAY ALL!

Especially: 2+++(yah! yah!), 3+++(gorgeous doo-wop), 4++, 6+++(awesome, rockin’), 9+++(better version of King Khan and BBQ Show song)
