Comments Off on You Gotta See This: Beth Jeans Houghton

“Red wine and whiskey are no good for me.” Many of us have mumbled something along these lines the morning after a night of good-bad behavior. Beth Jeans Houghton & The Hooves of Destiny concisely capture the euphoria and aftermath of such stretches in their new video off the curiously titled Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose (released February 28). The clip has the feel of a mad Monkees segment with a dented next morning undertow, and the music shimmies somewhere between Shocking Blue and early Throwing Muses. Much to snag one’s attentions here, not the least the comely Ms. Houghton and hooky chorus: “Dissecting the atlas for places we’ve been/Your list is longer but you’ve got more years on me.”
