Jesse Matheson's Pleasures

If for no other reason than the cover, I had to five Pleasure Pounds a chance. I don't know much about Jesse Matheson, the musician behind the album, but I will tell you that after listening to it, I was hooked. It's got songs about girls, about food, about sexual innuendo connecting the two, booty, motel porn, getting drunk, and doing it in graveyards. Honestly, it's like he made a check list of things that guys couldn't resist and went right down it. It's all delivered in a dry, dead-pan sort of way that kind of reminds me of a toned down G. Love with a little less funk and a little more straight forward acoustic strum. Try out Make Out below, and get your hands ready for some clapping.

Visit his label Copperspine Records and become his friend on MySpace.
