Album Review

Bonfire Madigan – “Lady Saves The Dragon From The Evil Prince” – [MoonPuss Music]

lombard   7/21/2009   12-inch, A Library

Composer and cellist Bonfire Madigan says that she’s finally realized a childhood dream by releasing a clear vinyl record, something that for her hearkens back to her memories of the imagery on the back of the album cover for Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here,” in which a man is holding a clear vinyl record.

Lady Saves the Dragon from the Evil Prince” (2009) features 4 tracks, which are all variations on her voice/cello piece “Lady Saves.” Versions range from the intense, cello-forward and crisply voiced acoustic mix (my favorite) to a dub version by Dub I.D. with waves of sound and processing over the vocals. The Neotropic mix is more ominous with some beats (but not really danceable) and more buried vocals.

It’s hand-numbered and limited to 1000 copies and is a teaser of sorts for her forthcoming album.
