D.on Darox & The Melody Joy Bakers: “Was it Louis Armstrong who said the blues weren’t necessarily intended to be an expression of sadness, but rather a cure for it? In that spirit, Agonizing Sad Beauties is the perfect soundtrack for the new depression — the fiddle parts alone could replace a week’s worth of Prozac. Soulful, poignant and skillfully executed, this recording is at once nostalgic and refreshing. Imagine young Tom Waits cradling an accordion on Bourbon Street with a full band beside him and a fifth of whiskey at his feet. The band calls it dirty gypsy — indeed, it seems to leave a gritty residue on the listener. A sample of its well-crafted and memorable lyrics: “You pushed me up against the glass of the Nicholby’s thrift shop, which used to be an antique store and before that it was another thrift shop, and you smiled a smile that you don’t hand out too often.” ” Michel Cicero - Ventura County Reporter
