ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vancouver’s Girl Nobody formed in 1999 and has since become one of the few bands that can offer cerebral charm and sexual bravado within a lullaby of pop swoon, all the while continually stretching musical parameters. The band’s stunning live shows, along with their critically acclaimed self-released debut album The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be (2004), produced by Futcher (The Be Good Tanyas) proved that the hype Girl Nobody had been generating was warranted.

Girl Nobody’s true strength is their sheer unpredictability. Their live performance has been described as anything from “an eerie Berlin cabaret”, “electro-pop meets The Who”, to “adventurous music that sounds more inspired by Kurt Weill than modern pop.” Marta Jaciubek-McKeever, with her intoxicating voice and stage presence, effortlessly glides through songs spinning tales of alienation and aliens one minute, firing off political rants the next. All the while the rest of the band (Joey Turco, James Northey, Jeremiah Schneider) provides huge helpings of sophistication and flair, switching instruments from song to song.

Girl Nobody’s sophomore album Balaclava Casino Heist (due out in the fall of 2007)
is an exploration of the band’s identity. As in the spirit of their debut, here the band further expands the bounds of genres and refuses to be confined by them. Much of Balaclava… is propelled by driving trip-pop and dub beats supporting the ever present Rhodes piano, Moog and compelling electric guitars. The band’s innovative song-writing offers fresh variations on the classic structures of pop songs, ballads and dance numbers.

brilliant
a really, really good album. it has the feel of a soundtrack to one of those dreams where lots of weird things are happening but you know exactly where you're going. and when you wake up you have a smile on your face.
