Tori Amos – Night of Hunters (Sept ’11)

4th May 11 (Wed) 3 comments

Tori Amos is a chameleon – changing her musical style (slightly) and her outward appearance (usually more than slightly).  Trouble is lately she’s been putting out long-ass albums of mostly mediocre work, as far as I’m concerned.  Oh for the heydeys of the 90s and early 2000s.

Well, she has a new one in the can entitled Night of Hunters, and it’s coming out in September 2011 on Deutsche Grammophon, a German classical label.  Behold the art for her upcoming tour (and presumably the album)…

Um, is she human?  Is she plastic?  As far as the album, here’s the press’ slant…

“It’s a 21st century song cycle inspired by classical music themes spanning over 400 years. I have used the structure of a song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter. One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us.”

I’ll get it.  I mean, I’ve signed a contract with my 20 year old self to buy anything Tori Amos ever puts out.  I just hope to Talula that it’s good.

from Jonsi’s website:
The shows which start in North America in April, will feature a brand new band and a stage set designed by 59 Productions. Both these things promise to be drop-dead amazing. The idea of the stage collaboration with 59 Productions is to bring together the worlds of theatre and music in a new and hopefully unique way, in order to create something other than the hoary old cliches that pass for innovation in rock’n’roll. The ideas remain very much “in development”, but there will be some surprises, for sure. Here’s a maquette of how things might appear. Cute, huh?

I was gonna post a blog about a reminder about Orange Tulip Conspiracy‘s upcoming West Coast tour, Opeth and wrapping their latest video, or Will Ferrell and his George W. Bush stage production, or Wynton Marsalis on the Colbert Report, or a too cute for school puppy, or Kevin Smith doing a space film next… but it ALL got sidetracked due to this amazing new album cover (thanks EW blog):

Animal Collective‘s Merriweather Post Pavilion (due out Jan. 20, 2009)

THIS is NOT an animated GIF. It’s a regular, 1-layer jpeg.  I downloaded it and it doesn’t have any funky layering going on.  It’s all a trick of the eyes…

Wicked cool.
