Her furious, breathlessly delivered lyrics on "Runs in the Family" are spit out like venom ("It runs in the family, I come by it honestly, do what you want 'cause who knows, it might fill me up"), while the pretty "Ampersand" takes a far more restrained approach, her verses almost capricious instead of melodramatic: "The ghetto boys are catcalling me / As I pull my keys from my pocket / I wonder if this method of courtship / Has ever been effective…Still, I always shock them when I answer, 'Hi my name's Amanda.'"Solo debuts by lead singers of established bands always tend to veer toward the self-indulgent, and indeed, Palmer's album is no exception.
Part pretentious art school eccentric, part confessional singer-songwriter, part clever pop composer, Palmer knows full well that it doesn't hurt for pop music to be full of itself from time to time, and judging by the very loyal following the duo has built over the last few years, the message appears to be getting across in a big way.When Palmer strikes that balance between ostentatiousness, wry poetry, and genuine hooks, as on past gems like "The Jeep Song", "Coin Operated Boy", and "Shores of California", it's easy to understand why the Dolls' fanbase has grown at the rate it has. This year, the question fans had was just how much of a departure Palmer's much-ballyhooed collaboration with Ben Folds would be from the usual Dresden Dolls oeuvre, but upon hearing the opening notes of her solo debut, the answer is, likely to the relief of many, not very much at all.Just as Emily Haines' Knives Don't Have Your Back took a much more stripped-down approach than that of her band Metric, portions of Who Killed Amanda Palmer do focus more on the solo piano ballads, but Palmer and Folds are smart enough to not allow the entire record slip into a rut of stripped-down, Starbucks-friendly crooning, adding enough frills to keep things interesting for 54 minutes.Recorded spontaneously while on tour, the raucous "Leeds United" benefits greatly from its no-frills-approach, Palmer's sloppy, coarse-throated howls accentuated by swaggering horns, while conversely, the tender "Blake Says" is a sweet Lou Reed homage, right down to its paraphrasing of the Velvet Underground's "Stephanie Says".The Columbine-inspired "Strength Through Music" is a gorgeous, tragic look through the eyes of a teenaged mass-murderer, Palmer's depiction as matter-of-fact as Gus Van Sant's film Elephant.Managed by Percy Edgar and Pat Casey, it consisted of three room: one contained the transmitter, one was the office and the other was the 12x20ft studio.1923 Dec 6Midlands Today presented by Barry Lankester and produced by Michael Hancock.1977The Horror of Fang Rock, only episode of Dr Who to be filmed here at The Mill.The set consisted of a lighthouse built in the studio, and it was the setting for a battle with an alien shape shifter.The album's first six tracks are exceptional, and opening track "Astronaut" is as good as anything the Dresden Dolls have put out, the song's insistent drumming very similar to Viglione's impassioned beats.Co-producer Folds adorns the song with clever little trappings, though, underscoring Palmer's sweeping piano chords with equally epic strings and the subtlest hint of a throbbing synth line, transforming it into a rather gorgeous orch-pop tune.
