Majesty Crush - Fan Ep (2002)

Majesty Crush - Fan Ep (2002)
Mp3 @ 192 kbps - 40 MB

Detroit's Majesty Crush specialized in lush, dreamy guitar rock of the Galaxie 500/shoegaze variety, but gave it a nasty twist: a fascination with pornography and stalkers. The four-piece band (with inaudible connections to the city's techno scene) suffered from singer David Stroughter's habit of restraining melodies to one or two notes, but the rhythm section of bassist Hobey Echlin and drummer Odell Nails III (both ex-Spahn Ranch) was surprisingly powerful, and Michael Segal's guitar kept everything shimmery and lovely-no matter how dark the lyrical vision.

The Fan EP starts off with Majesty Crush's nominal anthem, "No. 1 Fan," a love song of the sort that inspires restraining orders; in the chorus, Stroughter breathily intones, "I'd kill the President for your love." The four other songs are slow, whooshy and of a piece, including a re-recording of the band's first single, "Sunny Pie," an ode to a check-out clerk at an X-rated bookstore.
