Adobe & Teardrops: Episode 133

Since this episode is, uh...a little late, everyone gets the extended cut!
 
Vacation, Bella in the country, work troubles, refrigerators, spicy takes about Bright Eyes, and a whole buttload of music!
 
Album of the Week: Hayley Thompson-King -- Sororicide
 
 
 
This album is so cool. Thompson-King is a woman with intense artistic vision: her debut Psychotic Melancholia introduced the main themes on Sororicide. Thompson-King, a trained opera singer, used her sophomore album to tell the story of a woman (who may or not be the artist herself) whose artistic vision is so all-consuming she’s convinced it’s the voice of the twin she absorbed in utero
 
Thompson-King uses this album to explore the musical motifs throughout her life so far: New York punk, opera, and Americana. It’s a bold and adventurous vision and Thompson-King and her band realize it with aplomb.
