Harvey McLaughlin- Tabloid News LP . ’Tabloid News’ is the debut solo album by San Antonio born and based singer / songwriter Harvey McLaughlin. The album represents something of a throwback to the 1970's piano-based long players by the likes of greats such as Warren Zevon, Randy Newman and Tom Waits. There are nods to New Orleans R&B and Chicano Soul while maintaining the urgency of the young roots rock bands McLaughlin honed his craft and musicianship with over the last dozen years. Armed with a dusty spook house piano, a near drunken rhythm section and a bevy of stories to tell, ‘Tabloid News’ is a witching, well-executed mash up of pre-rock stylings with a defiantly contemporary twist. The LP also includes a giant pull out newspaper style tabloid newsprint insert as well.
