Charming Hostess - Punch

SKU AdHoc 07
I believe that this was the second Charming Hostess album, which has been waiting for a release for a few years now and it is very great to have it finally available. Familar names here include most of Sleepytime Gorilla Museam: Carla Kihlstedt, Nils Frydahl and Dan Rathburn, plus Jewlia Eisenberg (the band's leader) and Wesley Anderson.

"A few of you will already have heard either the Hostesss first wild American release or founder Jewlia Eisenbergs ear-opening Tzadik CD of last year. The Hostesses here are an extraordinary 7 piece band, tight, a little rockish, comprising bass, drums, guitar, fiddle, various horns, accordion and other occasional instruments (singing saw, for instance) - but the work is distinguished by the amazing vocal arrangements (everyone sings, and exceptionally). Additive rhythms stretched harmonies, pinpoint playing; this is evolved material, executed with great skill - and great looseness. Some traditional pieces from Bulgaria, Palestine, Transylvania and Southern America appear in very personalised arrangements alongside original songs that go way beyond world music genres."
