The Locksmith Cometh
July 2007 Radio Star

Not Everything is as it Seems

Nedelle has broken with the cleaner, folkier sound on her previous two records released on Kill rock Stars. Her upcoming August 7 release on Tangram 7s offers multiple views from different angles. But it's all Nedelle: darkenss and sarcasm exist peacefully alongside sweet and poppy arrangements.

Nedelle wrote all the songs and plays electric guitar, violin and keyboards on the on the album. Guest musicians Chris Cohen (The Curtains) offered drums, bass and some guitar and Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu) played additional guitar to help fill out Nedelle's arrangements.

During the creation of The Locksmith Cometh, Nedelle was finishing her BA in music, and opening tours for her friends Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu, Jens Lekman, Magnolia Electric Co., and Destroyer!
