It’s FALL & I made something for you

I don’t expect to make this a habit, but am compelled at the moment.
Perhaps it’s because you’ve had your heart broken (you know who you are).
Perhaps it’s that Molly Yeh has been posting recipes with alarming alacrity,
making my song harvest appear pitiable by comparison.
Perhaps it’s that Oscar told me that Sxip told him in London that I should be
“more open with [my] audience,” whatever that could mean!
Perhaps it’s that Cannibal took me & Raf a million years and one could really use some instant gratification.
Maybe it’s ’cause I normally have people over for dinner to test out new songs, but the gas is currently off.
Maybe it’s voodoo magic cast by Katelan Foisy. That’s probably it.
Whatever. Gist is: I wrote a song REAL quick, Genius Ace came by w/ 3 mics and we made a live, roughshod ‘field recording’ of the thing feat. his empathic support-sounds.
From my bedroom to your headphones, here goes nothing:

‘The Natti Vogel Inexperience’ Debut, Friday 2/15 830pm @ Branded Saloon

Indie rock fusion virtuoso” (New York Press) and “rising international rock star” (Global Times) Natti Vogel has halted touring abroad to assemble a local, 5-piece-band as visually appealing as they are musically accomplished. After a series of successful private showcases and mini-sets, the Inexperience is tight and ready for their public deflowering. The Branded Saloon* will celebrate by offering a discounted, limited-supply Natti Vogel cocktail at the bar.

The Inexperience Is:
ACE – percussion, humor
MARC – low-end, handsomeness
JOY – harmony & counterpoint, class
MEDICI – synth & guitar, edge
NATTI – keys & lead vox, camp

The Natti Vogel Inexperience: Medici, Marc, Joy, Ace, Natti (L-R)

*The Branded Saloon is just a gem of a venue, located at 603 Vanderbilt Ave. in Brooklyn, NY. Aim for 8:30pm, because the Inexperience plays at 9 SHARP.

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1st @ SPECTRUM, 8pm, 121 Ludlow Street

At 25, my early cabaret days just keep coming back to haunt me.

Valerie Kuehne, wild curator/cellist/composer, has given me the distinct honor of hosting this month’s SuperCoda Variety Show at the gorgeous semi-private venue Spectrum, home of a 7-foot Steinway Grand and first-rate audio pornography. Most of my shows in the coming year will — without giving too much away – not be solo, so this will be a rare treat for us both.

Arrive promptly at 8pm with whatever cash you wish to spend on music and booze, a *classy* guest, a rambunctious attitude and the knowledge that I may at any time anthropomorphize honey containers, recount horrifying experiences in Tokyo Love Hotels, take your requests and debut an inappropriately poppy new song.

SPECTRUM is: the 2nd Floor of 121 Ludlow Street, LES, Manhattan.

… in the middle of January?

So much has happened in the past 1.5 years since we’ve been in touch that it is unforgivably obscene!

I don’t know how we could catch up on it all in such a brief post BUT. I. WILL. TRY:

There’ve been wine-bottle pianos, sexy and strange honey-baptisms with bridge-jumping aerialists, a music video premiere on the Faster Times, festival shows with my beloved band and string quartet, a Japan tour, a birthday tribute concert, a 2-page spread in a Danish magazine, an album release, and that’s just all my labile musician brain can recall at this time.

Natti Vogel & Najva Sol by Rijard Bergeron

I’ve sworn in vegetarian blood that I will keep you better abreast of everything in 2013, so let me start by proving it to you now:

VALERIE KUEHNE - a *genius* (not a term I use lightly) cellist whom I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with for 5 YEARS, and whose exquisitely written essay on my songs gave this website its catchphrase, has asked me to join the circus tonight for an intimate show at Panoply in Brooklyn. I know it’s terribly last minute, but this is a rare opportunity for interdisciplinary magic in which I suggest you partake. I will debut an outrageously chaotic and ferocious new song laden with a desensitizing quantity of unresolved tritones in the melody. Warning: trigger for anyone with feelings.

SHOW TONIGHT Wednesday January 16th 8pm, Panoply Lab, 204 Meserole St., Brooklyn

It feels very, very good to blog all over this blog again.

So many more exciting announcements coming soon.

Love to you all.
