Carol Lipnik's new art-song collection,
"Almost Back to Normal" is now available!
A collaboration with luminous pianist Matt Kanelos and eclectic violin virtuoso/producer Jacob Lawson, the new album blends lush, mystical soundscapes with hints of the baroque, jaunty Brecht-Weill cabaret, old-school soul music and the avant garde, all of it imbued with Carol's signature phantasmagoria and droll, absurdist humor. Recorded using an 1895 Steinway grand piano in the world-class sonics of Peter Karl Studios in Brooklyln, it's a collection of tersely intense songcraft and longer-scale, psychedelically-tinged mood pieces.
