I’m so happy to hear my beloved Dresden Doll get all creepy and goth again! If, like me, you adore The Dresden Doll’s “Perfect Fit,” Amanda’s string-infused Bowie tribute, the Stranger Things theme, The Legendary Pink Dots (duh, it is Edward Ka-Spel after all), and Bauhaus, this is the album for you. If you don’t like them, well, I question your music taste and you should probably move on.
The standout track is “The Jack of Hands.” Other favorites are “Beyond the Beach,” “The Shock of Kontakt,” and “The Changing Room.”
The entire I Can Spin a Rainbow album is a delightfully eerie, spreading shadow.
