My Fever Broke EP
What more can you say about a group that is described as “pseudo-classical, hard core ‘positive-goth’ cello rockers”? It seems like all the adjectives are taken. Except for fun. And that is exactly what Melora Creagor’s Rasputina is. “At the State Fair with a White Trash Sucker” is one of the funniest songs you will probably hear this year. The Tom Tom Club would be proud.
For this EP, Rasputina got some heavy hitters for remixing muscle: Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Tweaker), Dimitri Tikovoi (Cranes), and Joseph Bishara (Marilyn Manson, Jane’s Addiction). They inject some meat into Creagor’s humor, another twinkle in the devilish spark in her eye. Tikovoi adds real pathos into “SweetWaterKill,” and Bishara takes melancholy way past its two-drink minimum in “Deep in the Sweet Water.” And their version of Belle And Sebastian’s “The Fox in the Snow” will put a genuine smile on your face.
