Brooklyn-based Shilpa Ray left the Happy Hookers at home and brought her harmonium to the studio for a solo set, which included two tracks from her new EP. Just off a tour supporting Nick Cave, who also released Shilpa's EP via his label, her songs feature a familiar howl and darkness while tackling the issues and concern of the modern world.
Though a short album, Shipa Ray’s It’s All Self Fellatio EP, released on October 21st, covers lots of ground in it’s four tracks. Her velvet voice, full of expression, ties together musical shifts as the instrumentation touches upon several different genres including blues, motown, punk, and indie rock. The EP came about as a request from Nick Cave, who she toured with last year. He recognized her talent and so do we. Tune in to hear more.
