Since the group's inception in late 2007, the Portland Cello Project (or, PCP, as their fans affectionately call them), has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, everywhere from Prairie Home Companion, to that punk rock club in the part of town your grandma warns you not to go to after dark. The group has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go.
On her fourth studio album, Jolie Holland embraces the live-studio rock approach of the 60's and 70's, and transforms it with her unmistakable touch. Loosely inspired by Neil Young's Zuma, with nods to The Velvet Underground, the Stones, and Bowie, this playful dialogue gives way to Holland's most grounded work. Some of the lyrics were written tipsy on a train, others out of a trance state-every one drawn from the seemingly bottomless well of her muse. As always, her lyrics speak transparent and true as tender mirrors themselves.
