Amanda Palmer: New Song “Drowning in the Sound”

Amanda Palmer asked her Patreon community of fans for song inspirations, then wrote and recorded the resulting song in 2 days. The epic “Drowning in the Sound” moves from the eclipse to Hurricane Harvey. Amanda named Ani Difranco, Tori Amos, and Kate Bush as influences, but it’s also a continuation of her own evolving, mature sound–you can almost hear the path from The Dresden Dolls to “Machete.” You can read more of the song’s backstory and the lyrics here.

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.
