“Lookin’ for You”

From Gurf Morlix’s Gurf Morlix Finds the Present Tense

Liner notes: “You know I like it dark and hot/Torn and twisted, tied in a knot,” mutters Gurf Morlix, hitching his weary rasp to eerie organ riffs in this tale of unrequited desire.

Behind the music: Morlix, a producer and guitarist for Lucinda Williams, has also collaborated with the likes of Jerry Lee Lewis and Warren Zevon.
