Outrageous Cherry

Matthew Smith of Outrageous Cherry & The Volebeats
- Detroit musician and producer extraordinaire.

With the release of a new record, Universal Malcontents, I thought it high time to put together a comp for the uninitiated. The songs reflected here, culled from a sizable output over the last fifteen years are nothing short of genius.
Having toiled in in the shadows for years, which is a shame, really, as the Motor City quartet’s string of 60's/70's, AM radio, psych/fuzz output has always been consistently good. (That said, I'm still trying to figure out why last year's best-of, Wide Awake in the Spirit World, didn't contain one song from 1999's inspirational Out There in The Dark.) This late in the game, the band could be forgiven for coasting on its considerable talents, but instead Universal Malcontents may be its best record yet. Led by Matthew Smith (who's also a member of The Volebeats) is more in the zone than ever before, whether on the glam-inflected opener, "I Recognized Her", the two minute brilliance of "Anymore", the shimmering psychedelic "Feels Like Shadows” or the sarcastic stomp of “It’s Not Rock N’Roll (And I Don’t Like It).”, Universal Malcontents is Outrageous Cherry’s most engaging record in nearly a decade. These tracks, as well as several from Out There In The Dark, and many others are all represented here.

Enjoy !

Hey there, MC

Really appreciate you putting this nice mix together...even more broad & satisfying than their releasedl retrospective compilation.
Was wondering if you might have discovered that at least 6 or 7 of the tunes were 'Itunes password protected', and, no surprise...I couldn't crack it. (said each tune was only 'authorized' for 5 computers, anyway).
Ah well, the remainder are psych-pop-garage bliss. I dig his "poor man's Phil Spector wall o' 'Verb"
Grateful appreciation.
