New Jeff Murphy (of Shoes) Solo CD

Recommended Posts

Anybody here heard Jeff Murphy's solo CD "Cantilever" yet? I heard it was released on 1/2/07, and I just found it in Not Lame's update for this week, and ordered it. The sound byte samples there sound very good. I don't believe we've heard anything from Shoes for awhile. I also believe they're releasing a double CD of their old demos and home recordings that got them signed to Elektra sometime early this year (February maybe?)

How did you like "Cantilever," JohnO? I've listened three times now and find it very low-key and charming, with some very Shoesy (of course) moments...

Low-key pretty much sums it up for me as well. I guess I was expecting more of a Shoes-ish effort, but you mentioned a couple of weeks ago that he was doing an Emmitt Rhodes type of LP. It's not bad at all, but not exactly what I was expecting either...

Now, for the new double CD of demos from Shoes.....
