Description

Seminal cello-driven trio Rasputina presents their seventh album, 'Sister Kinderhook'. Rasputina directress, Melora Creager recorded it whilst pregnant in the Hudson Valley just last summer. She and Brian Kehew (Moog Cookbook, Fiona Apple, Air) mixed it in Los Angeles with a newborn in the studio. This album finds Melora expressing a thematic fantasy of Colonial Federalism. Subject-wise, she also touches on feral children (Snow-Hen of Austerlitz), the Anti-rent Wars of 1844 (Calico Indians), and Early American portraiture (The 2 Miss Leavens), not to mention the theory that giants were indeed real, but killed each other off in a self-genocidal holocaust (A Holocaust of Giants).
