Elvis Costello and The Imposters:: Momofuku

Like many of us, I have a ton of classic Elvis Costello hits burned in my head, though all of those come from a place, time, and spirit that has long left the building. And while I’ve heard nothing too bad from Mr. Costello in his offerings of work with Allen Toussaint, Burt Bacharach and anything else in the last near two decades, I’ve also heard nothing that inspired me to want to hit repeat or sing along….at least up until now. It seems there is a new wind blowing, or at least it was for a time, for Elvis Costello and The Imposters latest offering Momofuku brings back a bit of what we thought was lost for good. Momofuku comes across with a new flare and purpose, done in full Elvis color with a cast of friends like Jenny Lewis and Jonathan Rice, and hoisted to the top with a lot of good songs. There are even a few you’ll find yourself singing along with whether you want to or not, like the twisting melody of “Turpentine,” which features the same standout harmonies that sparkle and shine all throughout Momofuku. In addition to the harmonies one can expect to hear some fabulous sounds from the grand piano, wurlitzer, hohner clavinet, and vox continental permeating all over this one. A Good Listen Indeed
