CD Reviews

Eccentric, but very friendly
11/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Skip Heller is one of those guys who pops up on so many kinds of records that it is hard to know what he "really" does. This record shows that it is avant-garde lounge music. But instead of it being vapid, his lounge has real substance. Instead of it being aggressively dissonant, his avant-garde is full of fast humor. This is like cartoon music the same way Wallace & Grommit is a cartoon. The press compares him to Zappa very often, and this is right except for Heller is a lot less cynical. COUCH takes lounge and makes it something other than retro kitsch."
