Judy Blase Phd

a new innovative comic musical avant garde artist is born!
From the first note on this spectacular debut CD I was going "wow"--what IS that? IT's like nothing you've every heard--weird sounds, hilarious juxtapositions of commentary (see cut 3); gonzo instruments; a layering of sound and words like a symphony--and like a symphony there are themes to look forward to in every song. I couldn't wait to hear the next song to find the comedy and philosophy woven in very original textures. A true original

fun and inventive
Equal parts playful and melodic, reminding me of the best of The Magnetic Fields and Laurie Anderson.
