What I'm listening to now...

Amanda *#!@#* Palmer

Amanda Palmer is definitely a Mod Vintage Girl. 
I just got her new CD. 

Evelyn Evelyn

It's just beautiful and fun and gothic and vintage and modern. It's like listening to a broadway show. Sounds of the circus mixed with huge orchestrations and some rock and some punk cabaret. It's sad, it's disturbing. It's delightful.

This cd is co-produced and performed by Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley

performing as Evelyn Evelyn
a pair of siamese sisters

From the website about Evelyn Evelyn:
Drawing on their background in circus performance and an eclectic range of unlikely influences, the Evelyn sisters have crafted a collection of timeless new genre-bending songs full of humor, sadness and double entrendre.
Over three years in the making, "Evelyn Evelyn" incorporates the talents of over forty musicians and special guests to create a playfully dark musical landscape filled with diverse orchestration. The result is a blend of story and song quite unlike anything you've heard before.

Amanda Palmer was one half of the Dresden Dolls

and her last CD was a solo effort called 

Who Killed Amanda Palmer?
which is also great.

Check out these images of Amanda. I love her eyebrows....don't you?
