Portland, Oregon-based Rachel Taylor Brown will release her seventh full-length, World So Sweet, on September 20, 2011.
“I can never come up with anything pithy when someone asks me that. I hate when people ask me that,” grumbles Taylor Brown, when asked to describe her music. “As a joke, I sometimes say pith-rock; sharp ‘n’ pointy! Or spongy and permeable! Or maybe pith ‘n’ vinegar rock! No, wait: there’s that horrible thing they do to frogs in a lab, that’s pithing. Maybe igneous-rock is better.”
Talk to those who know her music, though, and other descriptions come up. “Unsettling but addictive.” “Good stories.” “Unpredictable.” “Arresting.” “Dark, funny, sweeping, panoramic, pretty, ugly, complex, moving.” And, “You can dance to it.”
