Check out the latest review of "Songs From a Dead Man's Couch" in Texas Music Magazine.

Texas Music Magazine is a quarterly magazine, and a wonderful resource for Texas music. Since it only comes out four times a year, it's an honor to have them run a review of a self-released album.

When Kristy Krüger coos, "I don't wanna see no sunshine," on her song "Little Polyanna," you believe it — even when she whips out the kazoo. With her fourth album, the dark, weird and wonderful Songs From a Dead Man's Couch, the Dallas singer-songwriter (who recently relocated to her old college town of Los Angeles) has crafted the perfect soundtrack for your next absinthe and opium binge — full of gloomy ruminations but lit up with melodic beauty like a windowless room full of flickering candles. Krüger's narcotic voice and gothic sensibilities prove a perfect fit for her cover of Depeche Mode's "Never Let Me Down Again," but it's her own songs that really linger and haunt, from the sly but catchy opener, "Gold Rush," to a handful of beautiful dirges that could have really redeemed Lucinda Williams' otherwise forgettable last album. Not since Tom Petty one-upped Roger McGuinn with "American Girl" has a student trumped the master as decisively as Krüger does Williams on "Talk Radio." "I'm a real keeper if you didn't know," she sings on "Blackhole," and you better believe that, too. — RICHARD SKANSE
