Tanya Donelly - "Mass Ave"
God, it's been way too long since we've had new music from Tanya Donelly. She had accidentally found herself on the verge of slipping into retirement when John Wesley Harding asked her to perform at his Cabinet of Wonders, a travelling vaudeville-type showcase he created with Eugene Mirman. I couldn't be happier he did that since it inspired her to collaborate with a ton of other artists (Bill Janovitz, Claudia Gonson, Anthony Saffrey, Chris Toppin, Hilken Mancini, etc) for her first batch of new material in ages. Titled The Swan Song Series, it is being released in batches of 4 or 5 per month, starting on August 6. Right now you can listen to a sampling of the group over on Pandora and watch the new, Naomi Yang Directed video for "Mass Ave" below. For more info, please check out Tanya's website.
