Margaret Chavez - "A LOUPE"

ALL 22 YEARS OF MARCUS STRIPLIN'S RECORDING LIFE CAN BE HEARD IN HIS SONGS. COUNTRY STRUMS, TEXAS PRAIRIES, HOWLING FEEDBACK, THICK RIFFS, MULTI-PART HARMONIES, AND STORIES ABOUT EVERY KIND OF EXPLOSION AND SCHISM A HEART CAN FATHOM: THESE ADD UP TO THE 41-YEAR-OLD TEXAN'S KINDA-COUNTRY, KINDA-SOUL, KINDA-ROCK, KINDA-LIVING SONGS ON HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM AS MARGARET CHAVEZ. THE NAME IS A TRIBUTE TO STRIPLIN'S MOTHER, AND IT'S A MEMORIAL TRIBUTE IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE. "YOU RAISE A CHILD / YOU MAKE IT SMILE / JUST FOR A LITTLE, LITTLE WHILE," STRIPLIN SINGS BEFORE BIDDING HER—AND WHAT SOUNDS LIKE OTHER PAINS IN HIS LIFE—"GONE, GONE, GONE."
