Moskowitz, Dorothy / The United States of Alchemy-Under An Endless Sky CD

SKU 28-TPKS5951.2
Hearing Dorthy sing again, 55 years later, is like hearing from an old friend you haven’t seen in decades!

“An amazing and unexpected return from the magical voice of The United States of America. This album reminds me of many different things all at once without sounding exactly like any one: Nico, Marianne Faithful, Robert Wyatt, and Dorothy's own past work. Total chill-out music of the highest order and of high art. I can listen to this on auto-repeat for literally hours. I've already turned a friend on. Fine, fine stuff!”

“Under An Endless Sky represents the interchange that took place between electronic composer Francesco Paolo Paladino, composer and writer Luca Chino Ferrari, and the legendary Dorothy Moskowitz, an icon of underground culture who broke all kinds of new ground as a member of The United States of America. Led by the charismatic composer Joseph Byrd, the band released their lone eponymous album on Columbia Records in 1968. It has taken on a mythic status that has grown through the years, sampled by Diplo and Mac Miller and widely acknowledged as a visionary psychedelic classic.
Francesco Paolo Paladino, an avant-garde Italian composer contacted Dorothy, inviting her to sing on some of his compositions. When she heard his 2021 CD release of Barene & Other Works, she recognized that they shared a similarly experimental point of view and she accepted his invitation. Paladino is known for his collaborations with Martyn Bates, Allison O'Donnell, Simon Fisher Turner, and other world-renowned contemporary composers, as well as his own sought-after 1985 debut LP Doublings and Silences Volume 1.”
