I might have mentioned somewhere somehow ages ago my inability to like Rocky Votolato‘s new album because it was an ‘easy’ album, with everything in the ‘right place’. Zero anger, little to no politics: few things were left from the punk attitude I so loved in him. But maybe the reason why I was able to, months later, understand True Devotion is because, in truth, I was in a similar place, and climbing out of the hole, was given absolute, unconditional love. Lucky Clover Coin is about this (and love is the new punk).
My name has five letters in it, and comes up in some Bright Eyes songs. I am (apparently) an artist, with too much time on her hands. Well, enough to blog (almost) daily. I am 1/4 (the smallest one, actually) of Lazy Acre Records; I also write & photograph for a
localmagazine based in Englaaand and makeused to draw musically-inspired comics for a canadian mag (RIP Inscribed). As if that wasn't enough, I book bands for a local experimental music venue called Subterrarium: we rock pretty hard. Sometimes I can be quite cute. I used tostill have a crush on Marty McFly; I like baking, overusing semi-colons, the smell of the sea, and thunderstorms.
I tend to be quite the busy bee, but if you make VERY sexy music and want me to listen and enjoy and possibly even (!!) write about it, shoot me a mail, baby. music(at)alicetragedy(dot)org
