“Welcome to the transformation train.”

“Transformation Train” by Marena Whitcher’s Shady Midnight Orchestra | Another one from Lukasz and the folks at Prolog. Another Swiss artist. And she’s, what, younger than me? Well, a year younger, but still. Based in Zurich, Marena Whitcher has made a spot for herself in the Swiss jazz scene, and now prepares to release her first record under the Shady Midnight Orchestra banner. Ghostology is this weird mix of sprawling jazz delights and theatrical (verging on spooky) avant-garde pop, and it all somehow works together because of Marena’s voice: angelic, expressive, and just a bit twisted. This record should be the sort that’s too weird for its own sake (especially if you don’t pay attention to the story) but it just works. The record hits stores on 17 April. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
