William-Carlos-Whitten-Burn-My-Letters Burn My Letters Report Card #3 - Radio / Podcasts

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.
