Meredith Yayanos is one of my oldest friends. You may know her from arts journalism, from performing as a musician with Amanda Palmer or Jim Sclavunos’ The Vanity Set, or from co-founding COILHOUSE magazine. Now, with multi-instrumentalist Dan Cantrell, she has formed The Parlour Trick in order to release the album A BLESSED UNREST. And you can pre-order it, with various levels of additionally beauty, via Kickstarter. It actually got funded within hours of going live. But, please, click through. If you like even some of the music you’ve heard here over the years, then I suspect you’ll enjoy this. It’s an amazing record.
