iTunes Review

Calling this her “pop” album, indie-avant-garde rocker Carla Bozulich stakes out territory that's more accessible than some of her other work, yet abstract enough to charm the fans who love hearing her reconstruct the way music is often made. Boy rumbles though the jumbled performances as if Brian Eno had gotten ahold of some gospel-blues, Appalachian folk, and electronic music and theorized his way to the other side. This experiment is largely written, produced, and executed by Bozulich and familiar partner John Eichenseer. Together, they create the ghosts of “Danceland,” where no couples dare occupy the dance floor, though as the song rises from a whisper it sounds like a film noir soundtrack ordered by David Lynch and Tom Waits. “Ain’t No Grave” (with its moves of gospel damnation), “One Hard Man” (a Nick Cave/PJ Harvey–like apocalypse), “Drowned to the Light," “What Is It Baby” (with demon-dark soda-shop cadences), and “Deeper Than the Well” are conventional by Bozulich’s standards. Which is to say, “pop” music fans will still find it all plenty weird, as Bozulich surely secretly intends.

Dick Pimento You Are Wrong!

Saw them last night with the SWANS and they blew me away. The intensity of live is never gonna give you what you get on disc but you will appreciate it much more. Do not miss her and her band.... And the SWANS were beautifully punishing!

time to hang it up

i loved ethyl meatplow and queenie was my anthem when I was a teenager. I was at all their shows right in front. I did not mind Geraldine Fibbers and went to a show they played with WACO. WACO was much better. This is the final straw Carla. This record really tries way too hard with meaningless lyrics and boring music. However, that is not the worst thing about this record. What really gets me is that your voice bores me now. It was unique in the early nineties but now it is the same raspy voice that every popular female musician today has incorporated. I bought this album when I noticed that you were opening for the Swans (one of the greatest bands ever), ever hopeful that it would blow me away. I found myself going to the next song over and over. The music on this album does not match your singing style at all. I know you are a good person, but why are you opening up for the Swans? Now I must delay my entrance to the Roxy.


Born: Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

From her early days in the post-punk group Neon Veins and the industrial outfit Ethyl Meatplow to her later work with the Geraldine Fibbers, Scarnella, and on her own, Carla Bozulich's eclectic music is united by an honesty and intensity that is often unflinching, and always compelling. The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist was a fixture of the city's post-punk scene in the '80s, joining Neon Veins when she was just 15; after giving up drugs and alcohol in her early twenties,...
