Poetry. "In a channel surfing acoustically explosive mash-up of socio-cultural commentary, Morris' pun-drenched HIT PLAY is a witty tour-de-force of juicy jouissey jewy jouissance. Pulsing with the rhythms of jazz, counterpointed with ironic rock-riff decadence, it reads as an a-semic asylum for postindustrial consumerism. And as you HIT PLAY spinning Dante, Duchamp, Blake, Gaga and Doris Day, Frank O'Hara, Donna Summer and Man Ray, it establishes itself as a vibratory nexus of meaning and desire; aschizophonophilia of recycled culture."—Adeena Karasick
