I know I’ve said it before but Burn My Letters could be the point where William Carlos Whitten takes up the mantle left by, dare I say, Mark Linkous (gasp!) Yes, I’ve said before that comparisons come cheap like Hunts Point hookers in the Bronx, but these artists have utilize ex-Mercury Rev bassist Dave Fridmann and both also create(d) expansively drawn-out musical landscapes that  have the ability to tame shrews and reign in monsters of destructive magnitude. More than halfway through this album I can’t help but think Paul McCartney is probably kicking himself for not thinking of composing “Poor Thing,” with its sweet harmonies and lulling melody.

We’re continuing the celebration of all things Bill Whitten / William Carlos Whitten (ex-St Johnny / Grand Mal) with a roundup of radio shows/podcasts that played tracks off of Burn My Letters. Check report 1 here and report 2 here and/or dive into the video playlist for BML!
