Jimmy Vargas & The Black Dahlias - The Tease...The Torch & The Noir (Teasa-Varga)
A sultry collection of cabaret songs that chronicle the (fictional?) love affair between Jimmy Vargas and Elizabeth Short - The Black Dahlia, a soft-porn star later murdered by the occult underground. These songs are all happy jazzy, finger-snapping lounge music, but recorded in such a way that they sound kind of out of focus, like they're coming to you out through a haze of cheap liquor or thick cigarette smoke. It's like, you want to dance to it, but your feet get further and further away the longer you listen to the disc.
