For five minutes, forget the Kickstarter campaign. Forget the Kickstarter campaign controversy. Forget the way Amanda Palmer has masterfully utilized social media from its inception to organize her fans, forget her husband (Neil Gaiman, if you've been living under a rock), forget all of that. Forget it, and just listen to "Do It With A Rockstar", the first single off the upcoming Theatre Is Evil. For five minutes, forget everything but the music.
So you did that, yeah?
And how great is that track? The music is symphonic and catchy; a minute and a half in, when it swings from the minor key feel of early Dresden Dolls songs to indie pop hooks, is a perfect transition. It's a little bitchy and a lot tongue in cheek, and it's been stuck in my head for three days.
And frankly, who hasn't wanted to do it with a rock star? Tell the truth, and stream or download the track below.
