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 & Jason Webley: New Album “Sketches for the Musical JIB”

Read all about it at Amanda’s website and hear/buy it at Bandcamp.

As old Muruch readers know well, I’ve been a fan of The Dresden Dolls, Amanda Palmer, and Jason Webley for over a decade. This album, particularly tracks “The Box,” “The Wolf,” and “The Fear Song,” shows how greatly they’ve grown as singer-songwriters over the years and especially in what I’m starting to think of as Amanda’s post-Machete era – Machete, the Bowie & Prince tributes, the Dolls reunion concert, and now this album. She’s no longer the former Dresden Dolls frontwoman or the controversial social media star, she’s Amanda Palmer, one of the most accomplished, talented singer-songwriters of my generation.

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.
