Mudville "Iris Nova"

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

About "Iris Nova"
This modern masterwork from songwriter/vocalist Marilyn Carino and producer/instrumentalist Benny Cha Cha furthers the retro-futuristic excursions of 2005’s acclaimed The Glory of Man is Not in Vogue (hailed by Nylon as “enchanting…a testament to the healing powers of rhythm” and called “poetic” and “other-worldly” by the New York Post). With eleven original tunes plus a cover of The Police’s “Spirits in the Material World,” Mudville seamlessly blends old-school soul and hip-hop grooves with a jazz sensibility, electronica flourishes, and live orchestral arrangements. The songs on Iris Nova paint captivating portraits of spiritual ambivalence, anguish and liberation, all on a palette of juicy grooves.

Outside of Mudville, Carino has co-written with and loaned her strange, fearless voice (compared to Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Annie Lennox) to projects produced by Billy Talbot of Neil Young and Crazy Horse and Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.

Benny Cha Cha, whose profile is on the rise, has lent his skills as a producer, bassist, and composer to artists such as Wu-Tang Clan’s Killah Priest, Brazilian Girls, Karsh Kale, Marshall Crenshaw and the Dred Scott Trio.
Mudville’s music has been heard on more than 150 U.S. and Canadian radio stations including KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, NPR programs Morning Edition and Studio 360, in the feature film Slutty Summer, and on the Gemini Award-winning Canadian TV show ReGenesis.

Iris Nova will be available from iTunes worldwide, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster and other major e-tailers. Limited-edition signed and numbered CDs (some which include original watercolors by Marilyn) will be available only at live performances or directly from the band.

Mudville is so creative - happy to hear new music finally. Paintings in the CDs? Wonder if they're as dark and groovy as the music. I love Marilyn Carino's voice!
