“Kihlstedt is a monster virtuoso . . . a truly original songwriter, and an inventive, singular artist.”—Stereophile
2 Foot Yard shatters the boundaries between art song and pop song by merging the visceral power of rock with the intimacy and warmth of chamber music. Violin, cello, voice, and drums combine to create a cacophony of harmonic (im)balance culled from an astonishing array of musical influences, from acoustic punk to the twang of old country love ballads. This trio led by Tzadik recording artist Carla Kihlstedt (Tin Hat Trio, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum) guarantees an off-kilter ride through the worlds of drama and melody. Art/alt rocker Carla Bozulich (Geraldine Fibbers, Scarnella), acclaimed for her recent remake of Willie Nelson’s 1975 classic “Red Headed Stranger,” has been called “the missing link between Patti Smith and Marlene Dietrich” (Uncut magazine). She is joined by percussionist Ches Smith.
