Amen Seat is music for anyone's inner insane teenaged girl. This duo project from MCB & Wobbly (of Negativland), presents a wide pallet of agreeably disorienting sounds that lunge, shriek and panic their way into song-like shapes. If one must dance for a living, this is the album to set yourself on fire to, music to break up with yourself over — a message in a bottle from vocalist MCB’s younger self, reflecting the deeply personal and universal truths about the patriarchial institutions which shape our lives. Flutes, percussion, choral vocals and musique concrète flow together here to stare down the myths of the last two to five thousand years.
The duo are joined by Jonathan Snipes of Clipping. (Sub Pop), Drew
Daniel of Matmos (Thrill Jockey), Corey Fogel of Julia Holter's
ensemble (Domino), Zeena Parkins, Craig McFarland, and Dominique
Leone. This is Amen Seat's first album.
