The Dresden Dolls

Postby Astica » Mon May 05, 2008 10:43 am

2-Piece Boston band.
I think their second album "Yes Virginia..!" was a lot stronger than their first, but I like the feel of both.
Current fave songs by the Dolls are "Mandy goes to Med School" and "Backstabber".
I like this band because theyre kind of fun and addictive, and their songs have a good atmosphere, if that makes sense.

Your turn.

I have one album which I can't remember the name of. They're very strange, but interesting.

I've got one or two songs, and I really like the band.

Ah, how I love them. They make very special and unique music, their appearance being equally interesting. I guess what I like most about them is their burlesque style.

There definitely is an appeal to their style. Amanda Palmer is fucking great. And Brian Viglione too, but Amanda just has a charm about her.

really like their stuff after ast introduced me to them, i've three of their albums on my pmp permanently since then.

i think it'd sound like how laura veirs would sound if she went into the dark cabaret genre like voltaire (neither song matches it enough, but close as i could find on youtube).

can't get christopher lydon out of my head, for some reason.

i haven't listened to "yes, virginia" yet, but think "a is for accident" is stronger than their self titled album, though a is for accident seems like a compilation.
could just be that there's too much distortion (for my ears at least) in their titular album, which is irritating me, 265 kbps mp3.

they make the kind of stuff you get sucked into, definately worthwhile.

:shock: awesome. When did you see them? I havent seen them live yet, damn living in little old New Zealand.

Yes Virginia is probably my favourite. Its a lot stronger than self-titled. I havent heard much of 'a is for accident' though.
I love the way they present ideas in their songs as well.
