    • This timeless masterpiece is little known, but it has inspired almost as many bands as The Modern Lovers' own inspiration -- and only slightly better known -- The Velvet Underground & Nico.

iTunes Music Review - The Dresden Dolls

  • The Dresden Dolls

    • The energetic duet of Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione that make up the Dresden Dolls have created a wonderfully haunting sound in their self-titled album. They have been able to construct an immensely full sound from a simple trio of piano, drums, and vocals. Palmer subtly interchanges between creating swells of melody to almost shouting and wailing her lyrics. The effect is stunningly beautiful. A note of caution: Their songs will stick with you throughout the day, so be prepared to be humming or singing well after the CD has stopped (not that this is a bad thing at all).

      Their performances are often described as punk-cabaret. On stage, the music takes on a dramatic-performance style in a costume that is part goth, part mime. If you have the opportunity, a live show is something not to pass up. To check out their look, visit The Dresden Dolls website.
