Album Review

Baby Dee – “Safe Inside The Day” – [Drag City]

cadilliac margarita   3/9/2011   12-inch, A Library

Released in 2008 on Drag City, we find Baby Dee tinkling the ivories and delivering songs that are somber and personal at times and fun, theatrical, and cabaret-esque at others. I hear influences from Freddie Mercury to Jesus Christ Superstar. He is joined by the likes of Bonnie Prince Billy (who also produced) on backing vocals, and Andrew WK on bass and drums, amongst others who support with guitar, violin, viola, cello, sax, and the harp we find on “A Book of Songs for Anne Marie” makes only a few scattered apperances. It seems she dug deep into her (perhaps religious?) childhood and other memories both good and bad to come up with a well rounded and satisfying musical experience. This is totally rad!!!
