First spin of track from forthcoming album Boy

Add your comment »

While her most recent releases have been as Evangelista, hyper-prolific experimentalist Carla Bozulich has dropped the moniker for her new album, her self-described "pop record" Boy. Recorded with Jhno, aka musical polymath John Eichenseer, and drummer Andrea Belfi over the last two years, the end result is, says the press release, "a refreshing and much-needed reminder of what pop – as an oblique angle, influence, and intent – can do in the hands of a ferociously commanding singer/lyricist who has cut her teeth on genre-bending, genre–blending and DIY aesthetics". It's out on March 3 via Constellation, and ahead of that, we've got a first spin of album cut 'Lazy Crossbones' - listen above.

Love this, great news, but whats with the "pop" angle? The only place "Deeper Than The Well" would be "pop" is the planet that orbits Nick Cave's ego...

In reply to austy:

It's not "pop" in the traditional sense, no, but compared to Bozulich's recent work with Evangelista, it's pretty accessible.

I like the slow groove... reminds me of Ethyl Meatplow. I thought that horse looked familiar. Miss tnem. Glad she's still out there... Dreamy as hell...

I may be crazy, but I always found her to have really great song structure behind whatever experimentalism she puts forth. The last couple of Evangelista albums have some really great songy songs: "Iris Didn't Spell," "The Blue Room," etc. Plus I always say "You Are a Jaguar" would have been a big thing if the people programming the radio found it. Can't wait to hear what the rest of this sounds like.
