Editors’ Notes

As a premier cello-rock band, Rasputina add a punkish attitude to everything they touch. This collection, which sports the subtitle, Rarities & Neglected Items, is a truly fun way of hearing a band that is often associated with a lugubrious heaviness. The ease of a track like “Do What I Do” that isn’t afraid to jump to add dance-club rhythms to its tough funk, or the general craziness behind a composition like “Black Hole Hunter” and its serpentine harmonies, make for inspired listening. The cover of the Pretenders’ “I Go to Sleep” is pitch-perfect, retaining all the seductive dreamlike sensations of the original matched with a powerful string arrangement. Rasputina leader Melora Cregar explains these are mostly solo works of film scores, demos, and stray tracks, but that doesn’t lessen the impact of the deep sawing behind “Loom” or the beautiful horror-movie approximations of “Death at Disneyland.” Even a simple one-minute track such as “Skylark” casts a gripping spell that’s hard to shake.

Hooray for the new album

Ok I'll admit it, I haven't heard an album by Rasputina that I didn't like. Each one is a bit different, so it's like rediscovering the band every few years. Having said that, I feel this is a solid album. It's fun, quirky, and different. If you haven't heard the band before it's a great spot to start. If you are a follower like I am it's the latest and greatest!

Captivating!

Rasputina has always had a unique sound but this is... there aren't enough adjectives to describe this album. A few noteworthy tracks are "Skylark", "Ballad of Lizzie Borden", "Loom" and "Black Hole Hunter". This is definetely music for people who enjoy stranger/experimental/gothish sound. I highly recommend.

The New York City-based trio Rasputina was led by singer/songwriter Melora Creager, a classically-trained cellist who backed Nirvana on the group's final tour. In 1992, Creager placed a want ad seeking other cellists to form a rock band; among those responding was Canadian musician Julia Kent, and with the later addition of Polish native Agnieszka Rybska, Rasputina was born. The three cellists' image further developed by the addition of tightly-laced vintage Victorian costumes, their gothic chamber-pop...
