Evangelista - Hello, Voyager
Former Geraldine Fibbers vocalist Carla Bozulich is predictable only in the sense of most geniuses; her raw vocals, jagged and distorted guitar-seemingly improvised at times, constantly veers off into strange, wonderful and frightening new spaces. Following the release of 2006 solo record Evangelista, Bozulich decided to form a band with the same name this time around.
"Hello, Voyager" is gritty with plenty of punk dramatics; blistering tunes like "Smooth Jazz" and "Truth is dark like outer space" offer room for Bozulich's guitar work to shred. The title track and "Paper Kitten Claw" literally expand the space, with a more epic but still highly personal feel. Guests include members of Thee Silver Mount Zion add haunting touches, but this set belongs to the emotionally naked and poetic twisted images of Calra Bozulich. This is not easy listening, but there is too much of that out there anyway. There's hardly enough of this.
