Amanda Palmer: New Album & Song!

Amanda Palmer will release her new, full-length studio album, I Can Spin Rainbows, on May 5th. The album is a collaboration between our beloved Dresden Doll frontwoman and Legendary Pink Dots founder Edward Ka-Spel. If the first single, “Rainbow’s End,” is any indication, I’m going to love it…

Amanda Palmer’s New All-Star Song “On the Door”

Is there an electro-comedy genre? If not, Amanda Palmer & Brendan MacLean just invented it. Their new song about concert guestlists, “On the Door,” weaves an electro-dance chorus with comedic answering machine messages from various celebrities including Neil Gaiman, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, Craig Ferguson.

It’s strange and funny and I love it. You can download the pay what you want (incl. free) mp3 at Bandcamp.

What a time it was. They played all their best songs — “Girl Anachronism,” “Coin-Operated Boy,” “Half Jack,” “Sex Changes,” “Mrs. O,” “Missed Me”…”The Jeep Song” with audience members on stage — and some unbelievable covers — Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs,” Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name,” and a new Dolls arrangemeng of Amanda Palmer’s single “Machete.” Best of all was seeing Amanda and Brian, and The Brigade performers, back in action, like the oldest, dearest, coolest, and most talented of friends.

Amanda Palmer Covers “Purple Rain”

As many of us hoped, Amanda Palmer and Jherek Bischoff have joined forces once more for this lovely string quartet cover of “Purple Rain” (with the spoken word intro from “Let’s Go Crazy”). Their Prince tribute is available via Bandcamp and benefits Prince and Sheila E’s The Elevate Hope Foundation.
