Shelby Bryant has not released an album in a while because he’s a responsible adult and had to think about it. What does it take for a musical genius to think these days? Well, you have to stick your head in a few ovens. You gotta take in some sights and sounds. Bryant has recently been playing in a Memphis band called Fingers Like Saturn and writing music for movies and experimental videos. In the last century when things were made by hand, he made dough with Memphis combo The Clears and released a solo record called Cloud-Wow Music (both released on Smells Like Records). After disappearing for a while in Africa, or maybe Asia, Bryant is back with a strangely unique and strongly addictive collection of pop songs and instrumentals.What is this Luscious thing? Pop confection—a recipe for poetry, beauty, and fun. Bryant’s ability to craft music is like a pastry chef effortlessly smothering his best girl with chocolate. Who said you can’t get too much of a good thing?
