Matador Alumni Corner : There’s A New Thalia Zedek EP

Dear Friends,

Since 1982, I’ve had the privilege of standing around trying to pry my jaw off the floor while Thalia Zedek uses 6 strings and a voice that’s seen/felt-it-all to draw blood and much, much more.  While everything she’s done (Dangerous Birds, Uzi, Live Skull, Come) has run the gamut from great to really great her last couple of solo recordings for Thrill Jockey are kinda like Everest or K2 compared to 2001’s ‘Been Here & Gone’ (or as I’ve started calling it, “Lhotse I” — ASK MARK OHE).

Anyhow, the reason I bring this up at 3:30am on a Saturday is because Thalia’s new limited edition EP, ‘Six’ (also available from Thrill Jockey) is apparently only available in very limited numbers and maybe I purchased the last copy in Lower Manhattan, maybe I didn’t.  You shouldn’t take my word for it no matter what.
