Song of the Day - January 3, 2006

The Dresden Dolls are one on my favorite bands. Their blend of cabaret, punk, and pure theater is a truly unique experience. They recently released some live tracks recorded at the Paradise in Boston as part of their DVD. The track "Christopher Lydon" is about the public radio personality host of Open Source. This particular track shows off the great vocal range of Amanda Palmer, giving a glimpse to the uninitiated the depths of talent that reside within The Dresden Dolls. Click here to listen.

Aha! I had to fire this song right up, too. Mr. Lydon's voice has been a staple to the ears of New Englanders who frequent the NPR-end of the FM dial for a long time, and the Dresden Dolls certainly one of the more unique and solid musical exports.

The song is impeccably conceived and executed, but this whole EP sounds imperfectly recorded.
