Hello folks! We're back at it, writing reviews and shit! I think watching Bob's Burgers on Netflix all day has inspired me. So expect a lot of burger references.
Next burger up (hehehe) is the new EP from Fresno, CA singer/songwriter BedeDonia!BedeDonia
Part One: The Tangle and Crash
BedeDonia is an otherworldly presence on record and in person. Her style is pure punk rock ferocity. Her voice can be both powerful and dulcet; an instrument of many colors, expertly wielded at every turn. This is never more evident than in her debut album The Tangle and Crash, part one in an as yet unknown series of albums to come from the songstress.
Though primarily a solo acoustic performer, BedeDonia fleshes out her songs with delightful arrangements (courtesy of LA producer Edo Plasschaert), as in doo-wop number "Hitting the Ground" which features an irresistible blend of ukelele, tack piano, and bits of tambourine and finger snaps. BedeDonia proves herself to be Fresno's own version of Sufjan Stevens, such are the quality of her arrangements.
The main draw continues to be BedeDonia's amazing voice. On "Walking Out the Door" the singers silky intonations render helpless all who listen. BedeDonia is a captivating singer, and The Tangle and Crash is an album not to be missed.
If you want to see BedeDonia live, she will be performing September 3, 2014 at Das Bierhaus in the Tower District. She'll also be doing Love the Captive's Veni Vidi Vici Residency during the month of November. DO IT UP!
BY THE WAY! The official lineup for Spanspek 2014 will be released Monday, September 15, at 10am! Mark it on your various pieces of paper!
