"The Swan Song Series" 3CD set is a collection of songs in which Tanya Donelly collaborated with friends, musicians and authors such as Rick Moody, Robyn Hitchcock, John Wesley Harding, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang (Damon+Naomi/Galaxie 500), Bill Janovitz (Buffalo Tom), Tom Gorman (Belly), and Claudia Gonson (Magnetic Fields), and explored an impressive range that wasn't always captured on previous albums. This exclusive collection includes the first 5 self-released digital EPs + 7 brand new, previously unreleased, tracks on a 31 song set.
Tanya Donelly is a singer-songwriter and founding member of three of the most successful bands of the post-punk era. At the age of 16, she and stepsister Kristin Hersh formed Throwing Muses, which became the first American band ever signed to the influential British label 4AD. Donelly later sidelined with Pixies bassist Kim Deal to form The Breeders, appearing on the debut LP "Pod". She later exited both the Breeders and Throwing Muses to form her own band, Belly. Donelly would eventually disband Belly to raise her two daughters. She still found time to write and record music as a solo artist.
Futurismo repress this compilation of muzak covers DEVO recorded of their own songs and sold via their fan club. This bizarre material pushes the witty, eccentric and utterly unique DEVO sound in an even more extreme direction. "EZ Listening Muzak" comes with a wealth of wacky DEVO merchandise and although it is available as a CD boxset, the vinyl LP set comes in antique walnut or lava lamp colour!
