11 Songs is Liz Pappademas's first solo release.
Austin musicians Gary Newcomb (Richard Buckner), Jeff Johnston (Bill Callahan), and Rob Sanchez (Monahans) contributed pedal steel, bass, and drums respectively. They add to the haunting quality of many of the songs on the record, which address such subjects as love (Vacation Romance), murder (The Born Again April Fool) and film criticism (Desaturate It).
In addition to 11 Songs, Liz recorded a self-titled LP with her former Austin, Texas band Hurts to Purr.
After a positive mixing experience on Hurts to Purr's record, Pappademas teamed up again with engineer Brian Kehew (Fiona Apple) for 11 Songs, adding Mellotron and Chamberlin to the final product.
Liz is working on a new record due in June 2009.
