Evangelista, ‘Hello, Voyager’ (Constellation)

On 2006’s Evangelista, ex– Geraldine Fibbers frontwoman Carla Bozulich teamed up with Montreal musicians from avantchamber- rock collectives (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt. Zion). Worked so well, now it’s the name of her band. These impressionistic songs shudder to life under the weight of passive-aggressive feedback, anchored by Bozulich’s melodramatic howl and Tara Barnes’ menacing bass. “Smooth Jazz” is the opposite, and the title track owes much to the expansive trip-logic Patti Smith changed lives with. Check out the surreal liner notes for a direct look at Bozulich’s id.
