“Abandon Ship” EP by Isobel Morris & Ali A.B. is finally here! Enjoy.
“Abandon Ship” is a collaboration between Analog Birds bandmates Isobel Morris and Ali A.B. It was Ali’s idea to create a song structured like a ‘musical sandwich.’ The beginning and end of the song, played on piano by the phenomenal Collin DeJoseph, are two halves of the bun, and the rest is the (hopefully) delicious filling.
The lyrics have a surreal nautical theme; like the music, they were written collaboratively between Isobel and Ali. The words play out as a stream-of-consciousness story, juxtaposing themes of futility, decay, and perseverance against archaic maritime imagery.
“Abandon Ship” was initially scheduled to be released years ago as a single, but it was too much to complete at the time. It languished, unfinished, for many years, and now it’s finally here and completed, with two other stowaway tracks in tow!”
Suggested Actions/Defeat Hymns is a four-song EP by Whipping Girl (Isobel Morris & Matt Sweeney). The title track “Suggested Actions” features on their forthcoming debut album Find + Replace; the other three tracks are remixes and variations.
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!
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.
