New today (18 July 2016): “Fool’s Gold” is Isobel’s first original solo single since transition. It was produced, performed, and composed by Isobel. There’s also a B-side, “Idiot’s Bounty,” which is an extended remix of “Fool’s Gold.” Enjoy!
16 June 2016: Isobel Morris tracking vocals with Matt Sweeney live-looping via Ableton, controlled by a Maschine MK. II Controller. The track is “Airlock” from their forthcoming album. Stay tuned!
Hello all! Here’s Isobel’s new single, a cover of Beck’s “Just Noise” from the 2012 Song Reader release. It’s free to download or stream from Soundcloud.
“Just Noise” was performed and produced by Isobel Morris during Jan/Feb 2016. Ingredients: Voice, Piano, Electric Guitar, Ukulele, Guiro, Kawai SX-240 Synth, and Drums. No autotune or vocal pitch correction was used on this recording.
“Just Noise” originally appeared on Beck Hansen’s 2012 album of sheet music, Song Reader, and has been covered by artists such as Norah Jones and Portland Cello Project. However, this new version by Isobel is the best.
Hi everybody, and happy Leap Day! The featured track for our second Whipping Girl (formerly known as Ladyboy) EP teaser is “Suggested Actions,” a song that was composed around a feature called ‘Note Repeat.’ Enjoy! Watch this space and follow me on Instagram for updates (https://www.instagram.com/isobelmorrisxy/) P.S. I’ve once again embedded Whipping Girl’s debut single “Reticence Cliff,” in case you haven’t heard it yet.
Hello everyone, Isobel here. My new project Whipping Girl (formerly known as Ladyboy) – comprised of myself and Matt Sweeney – is gearing up to release our debut EP. This is our first teaser trailer (in a square format because it was made for Instagram). The featured track is “A Safe Distance,” which has sort of a 1970s cop-show vibe. Enjoy, and watch this space for news and more teasers! P.S. I’ve also embedded our single “Reticence Cliff,” in case you haven’t heard it yet.
Happy Holidays! We have two Holiday gifts for our loyal listeners. First, a brand-new cover of The Beach Boys’ “Wonderful” by Isobel solo, and second, a new a cappella mix (with a bit of piano thrown in) of “Over to You” from Analog Birds’ 2014 release Anti-Presence. Both are free to download and stream. Enjoy!
“Reticence Cliff” is the debut single from Whipping Girl (formerly known as Ladyboy), the new duo comprised of Isobel Morris (formerly Asa Milbankx, of Analog Birds and The Latters) and Matt Sweeney (GFP).
