Soft Serve

Soft Serve is the solo project of Chicago weirdo Eleanor Balson. Her first CD, "Good Mood, Bad Mood" is a stumbling work of genius somewhere between The Shaggs and Drumbo-era Beefheart percussion. Plenty of piano, marimba, glockenspiel and tympani (!) along with a guest accompaniment from Fred Lonberg-Holm, Thymme Jones and Johnathan Hischke among many others.

Ms Balson is currently dabbling in retardo-electro, bringing her odd sensibilities to the genre. Here is a track from her CD-R "Seeds of Crimatia" :
