Amanda Palmer, Jason Webley & Gaba Kulka: Elephant Elephant Video

As I posted yesterday, Gaba Kulka performed with Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley in Prague earlier this week. You can see some great photos from the gig here. And following are some YouTube video links from the performance provided by Gaba, including a new one of her elephant puppetry while Amanda and Jason sang “Elephant Elephant” from their Evelyn Evelyn album.

Mp3 Menagerie: Evelyn Evelyn, Barton Carroll, Sanders Bohlke

Evelyn Evelyn – Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn? (mp3 removed) *

Conjoined twin sisters Evelyn Evelyn originally recorded this song two years ago with Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley for the Elephant, Elephant EP. This newly recorded version is from Evelyn Evelyn’s upcoming debut album.

Update: It’s been brought to my attention that Evelyn Evelyn were fictitious characters created by Amanda Palmer for this project. I suppose I should have known – it’s obviously Amanda and Jason Webley singing in the songs. I just assumed that the “twins” had written the songs and perhaps played instruments on the album. Considering the wide range of unusual artists that Amanda has collaborated with over the years, this new project really didn’t seem out of character. Anyway, I admit I was fooled. But the real story behind Evelyn Evelyn (of which you can read here and here) doesn’t change my opinion of the music.

Barton Carroll – Shadowman (mp3) *

Another new song from Barton Carroll’s Together You And I album. I posted another mp3 from the album in December. Barton has made the entire digital album available as a “Pay What You Want” download.

Singer-songwriter Sanders Bohlke recently debuted a new song on Grey’s Anatomy, and is now making some of his old songs available as free legal downloads. I gave his self-titled debut album a rave review four years ago, and I hope these developments mean he’ll have a new album soon.

Amanda Palmer, Jason Webley & Evelyn Evelyn: Elephant Elephant EP

Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls and Jason Webley teamed up with the conjoined twin sisters Evelyn Evelyn to record Elephant Elephant.

The EP is a limited edition featuring two original songs – “Elephant Elephant” and “Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn” – and a cover of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”. It also includes a disc of bonus tracks and out-takes.

Amanda describes the music as “something the Andrews Sisters might have recorded if they had grown up in the circus listening to new wave music.”

You can buy the EP for $11 at Eleven Records.
