LISTEN! to the Weirdo End Time Heartache of Jimmy Whispers’ “(Summer in Pain)” LISTEN! to the Weirdo End Time Heartache of Jimmy Whispers’ “(Summer in Pain)”

So Jimmy Whispers, huh? Okay. Good name. A little porny in a Hubert Selby Jr. dream of Brooklyn’s once violently beautiful decay kinda way but this kid’s from Chicago and is a shad shaggier in his honeydew blonde than The Queen of the Bennies but I can’t and won’t hold that against him because I was a blonde baby, myself and the Queen, as we all know, is dead. So what the hell with this cat? Who knows? Something about casios in red dresses and a yen for basketball. A modern art bias. Bubble baths. This…um…jam? Is this a jam? It might be. It’s melodious in it’s way like a Gary Wilson mannequin serenade or a broke-winged Babybird or a love song scratched in circles after three days of stark-raving wakefulness. I really cant’s say but I can tell you it’s the title track (albeit parenthetical) off Mr. Whispers’ (is it fair to call you that?) upcoming LP Summer in Pain (out 3/24 on Moniker) and you can stream it below if ya need to be in the know and I kinda think you do. Rockit.
