Pleasure Forever - Bodies Need Rest
I'm sorry about the lack of updates from me, but I was laying on a beach in Florida for the better part of the last week, so I haven't really had time for the Internet. Bodies Need Rest is a posthumous record consisting of unreleased tracks and b-sides. Usually collections like this are mediocre at best, tossing together a bunch of throwaway tracks for die hard fans only. This release actually sounds cohesive, and could easily pass itself off as a legitimate album. For those of you not familiar with the band, Pleasure Forever writes awesome psych-rock songs about doing drugs and having orgies, and mix things up with some interesting cabaret inspired piano parts. This probably isn't the best place to start if you've never heard the band before, but it still is a great listen and serves to reinforce the fact that these guys broke up way too soon.
