Label: Eight Foot Records | Release Year: 2016
2016 debut collaboration between ex-Dresden Dolls vocalist Amanda Palmer & her dad Jack, covering songs by Leonard Cohen, John Grant, Richard Thompson, Sinead O'Connor, Phil Ochs & others. Before she had her baby, Amanda Palmer was terrified that, when she’d had him, she’d 'play nice folk songs'. Now, as she joked to her audience at Koko last month, by making this record with her dad Jack Palmer, 'lo and behold…' Her hope, she continued, was that she was 'exorcising this thing like a satanic demon'. But for some reason, You Got Me Singing doesn’t feel as incongruous with the rest of her self-described 'punk cabaret' body of work as she seems to think. Maybe because categorising her work before You Got Me Singing was never really that simple. She was always making music that felt right to her, and that’s what she’s doing now.
