Artichoke by ZoeBoekbinder published on 2012/04/20 18:05:06 +0000 Zoe Boekbinder's newest album is a heart rending and tousled collage of auxiliary percussion, haunted horns, musical saw, and strings. Her voice flutters with delicate precision, and her frequently macabre and surreal lyrics hint at the haunted circus that she claims to come from. The album recounts a long trail of heartbreaks and disappointments with a coroner's eye for detail. Each song emerges as a sneakily alluring specimen neatly stuck onto a foam board with a pin. Shenandoah Davis' eclectic production stunningly brings all of Zoe's strange and beautiful idiosyncrasies front and center.
