Palmer, Amanda / Edward Ka-Spell - I Can Spin A Rainbow CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-8ft 035CD
“Amanda Palmer is just one of those artists that I feel if she was locked in a closet with any musician would create a genius collaboration. Adding Edward Ka-Spel into the mix is like a magical mix of chocolate and chilli. It shouldn't work if you just think about it, but when you listen to it, everything blends into a magical moment of perfection. The breathless whispers of songs, the subtle music style, everything is here in a perfect amount to make a wonderful aural experience!”

“I Can Spin a Rainbow marks the first full-length collaboration between Amanda Palmer and Edward Ka-Spel, founding member of visionary Anglo-Dutch psychedelicists The Legendary Pink Dots and one of her greatest artistic heroes. I Can Spin a Rainbow is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for Palmer, an avowed fan of Ka-Spel and the Legendary Pink Dots since discovering their psycho-theatrical, multi-textural work in her teens. Recorded largely on Ka-Spel's computer, I Can Spin a Rainbow is a truly collaborative effort, "a spiritual experience," says Palmer, in which both artists' stories, song fragments, poems, and lyrics became wholly meshed with loops, melancholy piano playing, melodic beds, and strange rhythms. The results range from the enchantingly minimal "The Clock at the Back of the Cage" and the album-opening "Pulp Fiction," mysterious and strange with a luxurious theatricality that conjures both of it's creators' prior oeuvres while also opening a curtain into a heretofore unheard shared sonic world. Sensing the need for strings, the pair enlisted frequent LPD collaborator Patrick Q Wright, who contributed violin tracks from his studio in Italy.”
