Other Minds Records proudly announces the release of “Residue”—talented
vocalist-composer-songwriter Amy X Neuburg’s second solo album. A cross-over
artist defying definition, Amy twists multiple musical styles together into
something all her own—from cabaret and hard rock to classical. It’s not just
her classically-trained vocal lyricism that’s appealing, it’s the astounding
range of expression achieved when she adds live electronics and percussion,
compositional prowess and clever lyrics to the mix. The 12 songs on
“Residue” capture the spirit of Amy’s solo performance, in which she
controls all of the sounds and processing technology by hitting electronic
drum pads. At the peak of the ‘Tattoo Song’, she cackles a demonic,
three-octave “Ahhhhhhhhh”, juxtaposed with a saintly 9th century “Lacrimosa”
chorus. Residue’s madness includes loops of the sound of a toothbrush, a
comic soliloquy on stoned late-night shopping, hard-driving declarations on
God, a lovely tender ballad ‘Finally Black’, an ethereal telephone
conversation with herself, all intertwined with samples, loops and layers

“More compositional than Laurie Anderson and a hell of a lot cheerier than
Diamanda Galas, Neuburg has scoped out her own territory in the gulf between
pop and classical.”
                    —Kyle Gann, The Village Voice

"Nothing less than brilliant...Neuburg has an artistry and potential that are truly compelling."
                    —Thomas Goss, SF Classical Voice
