Missionary Position Gives Boise the Come Hither 

Friday, March 16, The Shredder

The cover of Consequences, the new album from Seattle's The Missionary Position, shows a jukebox with the words "enjoy the seductive sounds of The Missionary Position."

Seductive is the right word.

With tenor sax and gritty vocals layered on top of spooky electric piano, the band takes blues in a direction that would work just as well for an old-timey stripper act as it would for luring wayward youth down the rabbit hole into a seedy rock 'n' roll underground.

"The Key" is more than a smash hit waiting to happen. The tragic ballad advises listeners "don't fall in love." It's a song to lose yourself to completely, with reverb the size of a galaxy letting the melody float as light as air, despite its heavy subject matter. "The Key" is the sort of song you play for someone to explain an emotional conflict too complex and intense to put into words.
