Burt Bacharach, Robert Smith, and Patsy Cline walk into a bar...
Familar songs take on new identities in the hands of The Incidentals. Material from Patsy Cline to Neil Young, from The Cure to The Carpenters, gets reinterpreted with drama, mystery, and soul. A simple line up of guitar, upright-bass, and drums is fronted by Sioban Dixon's dynamic vocals creating a sound that draws on their combined experience of playing indie, soul, americana, jazz, punk, and experimental musics. The Incidentals are full of contradictions - simultaneously familiar and strange, both a tribute and a deconstruction, a moody noirish celebration that shouldn't work but totally, totally does.
