Evelyn Evelyn, Annie Bacon: UkeTub

My favourite video this week comes from, Amanda Palmer’s conjoined twin side project, Evelyn Evelyn with a glorious animated video (which is NSFW if you work someone that frowns upon cartoon copulation and foul language – and if you do, what the hell are you doing working there?). Even if you haven’t been impressed with Amanda Palmer’s ukulele efforts so far, you should still check this out. You can read more about the project on Pitchfork – including rumours that the album features Frances Bean Cobain.

Also up are highlights from Annie Bacon’s The Folk Opera – which I am now eager (and very unlikely) to see.

Don’t forget to cast your vote for the Ukulele Video of the Year.


Evelyn Evelyn (Amanda Palmer) – Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn

Jumpin’ Diz, Rockin’ Rose & the Ukrane Ukuleles – De Kasper Köhler Klaagzang (enige echte)

As well as being fantastic singers and fine songwriters, they can shred on the uke as well. Watch them cutting up some Bach.

Herman Vandecauter – Fantasie nr 9

Annie Bacon – Highlights from The Folk Opera

Lauren Zettler – King of Wishful Thinking

James Hill & Melanie Doane – Avalon

Les Poupées Gonflées – Où est-il?

    Well, the Amanda Palmer thing shows that if you throw enough money and ‘creatives’ at something, you actually CAN polish a turd. Dent May cartoon next?

    Oh, I sound like JCMG!

    Thanks for the props, dear sir!

    Also, I’m not usually suckered by the pretty girls with ukuleles thing, but the German video’s instrumentation is totally cool.

    Any time Amanda Palmer and Jason Webly team up – I’m in! I really enjoyed Lauren Zettler’s performance. And seeing James Hill perform with Melanie Doane was an unexpected treat!
