Joan As Police Woman — Let It Be You (21 October 2016)

     Joan As Police Woman — Let It Be You (21 Oct. 2016)
Ξ   Sought–after multi–instrumentalist strikes out with her own, semi–eponymous pop/folk project.
Ξ   “Overloaded is one of the first songs we wrote together,” Joan explains. “From conception to final song, took only a couple of hours. In rehearsals we had been jamming on this riff together called “Hindewho” by Mbuti Peoples of Central African Republic (which is a duet using just a single note flute and voice). You can maybe hear that melody, it was certainly an influence for our song. Elsewhere on the “Let It Be You” record you might hear the influence of Ba Benzele Pygmies, especially on our loops and the complex rhythmic guitars. We tweak natural acoustic sounds and chop them up digitally and bit crush the electrics to make this new palette of sounds. As with “Broke Me In Two” we asked our comedian/musician friend Fred Armisen to appear in the music video, pretty much everything that comes out of his mouth is smart and funny but he plays it straighter here. We are looking forward to getting out and playing shows and for people to hear the record.” — Joan Wasser.Birth name: Joan Wasser

Ξ   Celebrating a decade of continuous critical acclaim and international success, JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN returns, this time working alongside fellow Brooklynite BENJAMIN LAZAR DAVIS. A true collaboration from studio to stage, from two artists well known for their ability to effortlessly cross musical genres. A deeply soulful artist Joan has famously worked with Antony (Anohni), Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed and David Sylvian and Benjamin is talented multi–instrumentalist who currently performs with Okkervil River, Cuddle Magic and Bridget Kearney. The album will be preceded by a single on September 30th — ‘BROKE ME IN TWO’ — with a video featuring not only Joan and Benjamin but also FRED ARMISEN famous for his comedy roles in Saturday Night Live, Portlandia and Anchorman, The Legend of Ron Burgundy, amongst many others. Joan and Ben met each other after separate trips to Africa; Ethiopia for Joan as part of DAMON ALBARN’S AFRICA EXPRESS, and West Africa for Lazar to study traditional music. They initially bonded over Central African Republic Pygmy musical patterns and ended up writing this album together loosely inspired by this music. In BROKE ME IN TWO you can hear this influence in the staccato bit~crushed guitar line that plays throughout. But ultimately it’s a joyous, love~soaked pop song.
