Aural Aggravation Review of ISOLATION AND REJECTION

Aural Aggravation has a very nice review of the ISOLATION AND REJECTION VOL 1 comp up, with these kinds words about my contribution:

Elizabeth Joan Kelly’s ‘Waking Up With a Cat on My Face’ perfectly encapsulates that moment or panic, that abject spasm through a minute and three quarters of swampy discord and sonic confusion.

Interview on Parenthetical Recluse

Tyler Weaver had me on Parenthetical Recluse as his inaugural interview for a new series. Hear me ramble on about existential dread, Philip Glass, Earth, Wind & Fire, solo accordion free jazz, MAD MEN, and more (very on brand, right?). Read here, and a big thanks to Tyler for asking great questions, and for the kind words about my music.

A Poem For Your Song – Harm

I love creative takes on reviewing music. A Poem For Ur Song is exactly what it sounds like–they write a poem, based on your song. Here’s what they had for “Harm:”

100 seconds until
orange blood drips down the mirrored
wall of the blue sky. death dressed

and blooming as cryptotrama
asprata will turn our corpses
all mycena chlorophos

under the blacklights that some
titans will hang from the rubble
of their ashen terrarium.

I love it. See more from A Poem for Ur Song on Twitter.

Beau Travail video premiere on THE LAST BLOG

It’s out! Thanks to THE LAST BLOG for premiering “Beau Travail,” the LAST video from Farewell, Doomed Planet! TLB also had these generous comments to offer:

“Elizabeth Joan Kelly has made an audiovisiual exploration that feels most akin to Twin Peaks Season 2 Part 8 (if you know, then you know…)

But really, it stands alone, just as Elizabeth floats as an astronaut into the great cosmic abyss. This is something that really lit a flare in our inbox.”

Catch the video here, and be sure to follow THE LAST BLOG, a new venture from Zola Jesus and Devon Welsh(!!!).

Departure 2019 reviewed on Raised by Cassettes

Lovely review and photos (!!!) of the Departure 2019 tape on the Raised by Cassettes blog. “There are a lot of sounds in here all at once- some slip beats and some static which makes it even begin to sound like a swarm of bees- and yet when you hear them all combined, in their formation together, it sounds like magic…”

Thanks Joshua!
