Some of the greatest praise an artist can get is to have Amanda and whatever top-notch artist she is collaborating with today cover their songs. Here is more proof (as if it was required).
There's something indescribable about a song that seems to transport you beyond the confines of space and time, where societal mores are no more than dim echoes in the back of your mind, where you can be free to experience things you never could otherwise. Laura is one such song. It reverberates in the mind and haunts your thoughts with its aching beauty...a beauty that is timeless...elegant...that is...Laura.
Amanda has a wonderful hand for cover versions! This time it's Natasha Khan's (aka Bat for Lashes) otherworldly ballad Laura as a live duet with Brendan MacLean. Follow the video link, to get yourself, er, dragged fully in ;-)
My guitarist/synthist & horn arranger/conductor Chad Raines just put out an album. If you've seen us on tour, you know this: The sweet sounds of THE SIMPLE PLEASURE will make you dance your ass off!! Amanda Palmer
Kim and I go way back. She's played shows with me all over the world, and I was on a 7" record she Kickstarter'd a few years ago. Her new album is an electro-space-pop love letter to the cosmos. Amanda Palmer

My best friend from high school introduced me to Evelyn Evelyn. They now live across the country. Listening to this makes me think of all the times we sang Elephant Elephant together at the top of our lungs in their car. We really like elephants. nicroth1220

Bewitching cello "looper" mixed like Ed Alleyne-Johnson did in early nineties but not on New Age way. Here it is as closer to J.S. Bach and his Cello Suite than Ed Alleyne. But the method is similar.
A very relaxing performance brings ears to nirvana by sounding rich harmonics from her instrument.
Siting quiet on a sofa savoring these sumptuous melodies taking my mind out of daily customs. This is what I feel while I'm listening to this album. Emmanuel Codden
