Hi…first day of summer, up at a more reasonable 7:30 today, rather than 5:30 and my son is still sleeping. Catching up…my review of Sister Kinderhook, the latest album from punk cellist Melora Creager, ran yesterday at Blurt.
Intense, intricate and full (occasionally over-full) of drama, Sister Kinderhook is something unusual in the music business: the work of a very intelligent person doing exactly what interests her. There are no compromises, no waterings-down, no obvious singles or sing-along choruses. Still if you want to hear what it sounds like when a talented, eccentric, serious intellect wrestles with big issues, check this one out.
