Cello-toting chamber-rock trio Rasputina release their seventh album Sister Kinderhook next month. We’re told founder/mainstay Melora Creager recorded it last summer in the Hudson Valley while she was pregnant and then mixed it in Los Angeles with Brian Kehew and her newborn. Outside the baby, the collection welcomes a new cast around Creager: Daniel DeJesus, the first male to handle cello, comes to the group from Philadelphia and Catie D’Amica replaces longtime drummer Jonathon TeBeest. See how they sound together on “Holocaust Of Giants,” a track positing the theory that giants existed, but “killed each other off in a self-genocidal holocaust.”
