Details

[Edit]

Amanda Palmer is one half of the Boston cabaret-punk duo the Dresden Dolls, and on her solo debut one only wonders what took her so long to take the stage alone. Palmer possesses a distinctly unusual and memorable voice, a penchant for sly, stinging lyrics (“who needs love when there’s the “Dukes of Hazard’?!”) and elocutionary gymnastics, and her intimate knowledge of what makes a piano work is stunning. If you’ve not given her or the Dolls a chance, you must. Clearly channeling spirits past (vintage Lou Reed and David Bowie, Nina Hagen, Kurt Weill, and the late Klaus Nomi), Palmer is storyteller, musician and creative visionary. Many of the tracks from Who Killed Amanda Palmer have been set to video and although they don’t tell one cohesive story, they work together as separate pieces connected by threads of theme (misfits, obsession, death, sex & love). More than half the songs are spare, powerful ballads, while on other tracks Palmer’s furious piano attacks and bursts of staccato drums, keyboards, strings and occasional guitars are full of dark energy. Ben Folds is here as producer and collaborator, and the end product is evidence of two great minds coming together in spectacular, full color fireworks.
