The Tease… the Torch and The Noir opens up with the magnificent Tallulah’s Boudoir, a glorious paean to the glories of the 1940’s burlesque club, and the album continues with its smooth soundtrack-style torch songs and finger-clicking jazz tunes, devoted to such sinful subjects as High Heels, Black Stockings, Strip Tease in Noir and House of Fetish. With Vargas adding just the right amount of discord to his silky smooth vocals, matching the unsettlingly sexy music, the album goes down as smoothly as Sebor absinthe and lingers in the mind just as seductively. There are moments which take me back to Twin Peaks’ Red Room, while other tunes cry out for bumping, grinding burlesque tassel twirling.
