So, I did an electro-sampled-vocal-sliced-and-diced album called DUBIOUS LUXURY.
It’s out August 9th—as an appetizer to the singing/songing album YES AND ALSO YES.
Dubious Luxury is weird noises, chopped-up voices, and large, freaky beats. I’m not a drug guy, but it’s psychedelic dance music—I presume it’d go well with hallucinogens.
I don’t sing on it. Vocalists include:
Joanne Kyger, legendary poet, colleague of the original Beat Generation.
Rachel Benbow Murdy, known to Soul Coughing fans as the ghostly voice of “Janine”.
Todd Colby, Brooklyn’s finest: the heroic beast of performance poetry.
Young Jean Lee
It’ll be on iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, Rhapsody, etc., but, if you buy it from my store, there’s a superspecial deal with a t-shirt.
(I wasn’t noisy about it, at the time, but much of the sampled stuff in Soul Coughing was my work: the crazed Bugs Bunny sample on “Bus to Beelzebub”, the peculiar Raymond Scott sample on “Disseminated”, the Andrews Sisters, Howlin’ Wolf, Toots and the Maytals samples on “Down to This”, the Chris Rock vocal on “$300”. The album contains a lot of ideas I’ve messed around with since the demise of the old band, that I haven’t had the chance to deploy)
(Actually, my voice is on there, but it sounds like a phantom closing a squeaky screen door, a Dutch nature-documentary narrator, and a singing asteroid)
(I did much of it at the artists’ colony Yaddo, which was funny to me, because the place was founded by the widow of a 19th-century railroad tycoon. She probably didn’t envision freaked-out electro music being made at her establishment)
Hope you listen! And like!
