Björk’s Vocals-Only CD

“Instruments are so over.” Really Björk? You don’t think you’re pushing it just a little? I guess I’ll reserve judgment until I hear it. Medulla features collaborations with Inuit throat-singer Tanya Tagaq as well as Mike Patton (former Faith No More throat-singer).

A few years ago my friend Adam turned his office into a Björk-shrine. One day Björk came in for an interview and the talent wrangler brought her into Adam’s office so he could meet her. There were photos of her all of the walls; I think she was a little freaked out. But she curtsied (cute!). Fortunately Adam’s not crazy like this guy who committed suicide on camera so he could be with Björk in the afterlife. In fact Adam doesn’t like Björk so much anymore.

If you ever get a chance to see Björk live, go! This was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.

What’s with that album cover? I wonder if Nick Carter beat her before the photo shoot.

Medulla is available for pre-order at Amazon.

UPDATE: Kenny directs us to MP3s of “Pleasure Is All Mine” and “Mouths Cradle.” Doesn’t sound like Bobby McFerrin at all!
