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.
