plays bass and sings. Experimental vocal technique meets freak of the week.
After years of leading avant-pop girlcore extravaganza Charming Hostess,
the songs she writes for Red Pocket are filled with the joy of romance.
Marika Hughes plays cello and sings. Classically trained, she now prefers to
rock the low end: Her cello parts incorporate lyrical melodies, funky bass
riffs and rhythm guitar punch. Outside of her work with Red Pocket, she plays
with Two Foot Yard, Etienne De Rocher, Eric McFadden.
Amendola is an amazing drummer who plays with everyone (Nels Cline
Singers, TJ Kirk, Scott Amendola Band) because he is so damn good. Incorporating
live electronics and hand percussion with the genius of the great funky drummers,
Scott holds the estrogen in Red Pocket together.
"Second superb Tzadik release from that fabulous & feisty
Charming Hostess singer/composer/bassist Jewlia Eisenberg with 2 Foot Yard's
cello wonder Marika Hughes also singing and Nels Cline's Singers drum wiz
Scott Amendola on percussion and electronics. Both listening to Charming
Hostess and Jewlia's 'Trilectic' (Tzadik) releases on cd and in concert have
shown us just how immensely talented and strangely charming Jewlia and her
friends can be. Her new trio Red Pocket once again an infectious blend
of wickedly incisive and hilarious lyrics, funky/rockin'/hip hoppy rhythms
with enchanting layers of vocals, harmonies and strings. Jewlia does an amazing
job of poking fun at the way women are often portrayed as the weaker gender,
she is way too wise for our own good and with more women around like her,
this world would certainly be a much better place. Way better than
most of what passes for pop music nowadaze." -Downtown Muisc Gallery
