"Residue" -- Amy's fourth CD -- introduces her new solo music based on her live "avant-cabaret" show for voice, electronic drums and real-time vocal looping. She has created an unusual blend of pop, experimental and classical styles that is at once intimate and seductive, clever and cerebral, intense and wildly virtuosic.
Here are some reviews:
New York Press
"An astonishing array of musical talents...a master with looping/processing electronics... Neuburg wields a phenomenal voice in which one gleans hints of the dominant art singers of our day: Meredith Monk, Bjork, Kate Bush's passion, Laurie Anderson's intimate brilliance... Backdrops of cascading gibberish or frantic chatters are startled by jet engines, ringing phones and abrupt slabs of noise, while Neuburg ranges wide with vocal stylings... Her music melds charm with smarts and power."
"I've been listening to Amy X Neuburg's 'Residue'... I think I'm in love. Neuburg is a new kind of multi-threat composer... a wonder of sampling, overdubbing, electronic manipulation of live sound, and beat patterns... a fabulous singer... exhilarating originality. Nobody else sounds like Amy X. Emotionally, her music is as complex as real life."
"Amy X Neuburg is a star -- a brilliant one... A classically trained vocalist, a composer, an electronic musician, a poet, and an entertainer... Satirical, profound, humorous, and sexy... Experimental but always under total control... Uses the looper in the most skillful and artistic manner I've yet seen... She should be playing for huge houses. She deserves to be at Carnegie Hall. The kids should see and hear her on MTV."
