Show Post: In House #1516
In a notoriously dead time of year for new releases, we look forward today to one of several much-anticipated albums out early in 2006, Nellie McKay's Pretty Little Head. Featuring guest spots from the likes of Cyndi Lauper and k.d. lang, Ms. McKay's second full-length is, much like her first, an unlikely combination of post-cabaret and pop-culture, alongside her youthful but sharp-tongued wit. The release, set for January 3rd, will also no doubt be helped out by the staggering amount of pre-release press it's gotten-- thanks for the most part to McKay's public protestations. To make a long story short, it appears that the Sony "intelligentsia" finally caved and allowed the new release to include 23 tracks, as per McKay's request, as opposed to the 16 they had wanted it whittled down to. Someone get her a deal with Nonesuch, quick!
In House #1516.
