In a case of life-imitating-art-imitating-life, Daniel Martin-McCormick’s sophomore Sex Worker full length, Waving Goodbye, is coincidentally released on the very day he embarks on a trans-American relocation road trek from the Bay to Brooklyn. Waving goodbye indeed. A major evolutionary pole-vault from last year’s The Labor Of Love 12″, here his aesthetic of pulsing, echoed anguish is re-imagined as neon-smeared street ballads (“Cool Boy,” “Tough Love”), forlorn dancefloor fantasias (“Next To You,” “Honeymoon Babylon”) – plus a cover of the Corona anthem, “Rhythm Of The Night.” Recorded in San Francisco and mastered/cut at Dubplates in Berlin, WG is SW’s peak achievement to date. Live, he brings a bizarro entertainer/MC vibe to the proceedings so def scope a set if he’s passing through yr zip code. Black vinyl LPs in jackets designed by Martin-McCormick.
