Elegantly spare, dramatic and danceable, New York’s Soul Coughing has brewed up the most affecting rock-funk fusion since Talking Heads. Combining nasal rapped/sung vocals, scratchy guitars, a deep, precise rhythm section, and offbeat samples (appropriating the Andrews Sisters, and Raymond Scott, among others), Ruby Vroom stands as one of 1994’s most notable debuts.
