lonely days
this is not a love song
the miracle
the luckiest valentine

We first became aware of Dallas-born, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Dariustx's "Southern piano-driven brokedown junk" when a friend hipped us to his mesmerizingly great tune "Wives of the Circle 5." The "trailer-park women are beautiful" refrain in that one drilled itself mercilessly into our skulls and paraded around like Pamela Lee in a peignoir for longer than we care to admit.

Not that the other material on his album, tothethingsthemselves, was anything to sneeze at -- and his sound, which suggests Ben Folds and Randy Newman filtered through The Band, balances meaty pop melodies with a Dixie-fried crunch that's relentlessly satisfying.

Now the man (AKA Darius Holbert) is wailing and pounding the keys (and occasional guitar) on the road with his trio, in support of his slammin' new CD, The Revelator and the Twilight.
