||Outside The Beauty Salon CD (1997) |
Brenda Kahn discography Following up the emotional Destination Anywhere would be tough for any artist. On Outside the Beauty Salon, Kahn seems drained of energy. Her vocal delivery is unusually unenthusiastic. Strong songs like "Matador" and "Alice" don't have the urgency of her previous work. The album is boosted by a rock n' country sound that is a nice change of pace for Kahn, and the guitar work of Tim Duvalier is excellent (especially on "Heather"). ~ Brian Flota

||Epiphany In Brooklyn CD (1992) |
Brenda Kahn CD discography Brenda Kahn's Epiphany in Brooklyn takes the same approach to lyrical content as Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road, in that her songs paint portraits of characters from all over the landscape of the United States. Her main setting is New York City, which is captured appropriately in the caffeine buzz of the first track, "I Don't Sleep, I Drink Coffee Instead." The album closes with "In Indiana," where she sings, "Brooklyn is a long cab ride away." In between, her destinations include the Mojave desert, Ohio and the Bible Belt. The albums mood fluctuates between excitement (the Dylanesque "Mint Juleps and Needles" and "She's in Love") and the despair caused by relationships ("My Lover" and "Lost"). The bleak "Sleepwalking" is a subtle masterpiece, with its observations of the contradictions inherent in the United States of 1992. Brenda Kahn's folk-punk sound and highly energized lyrics make Epiphany in Brooklyn a hidden gem. ~ Brian Flota
Recorded at Gark Studios, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Personnel: Brenda Kahn (guitar, vocals); Matt Wehling (mandolin); Noah Hoffeld (cello); Gregory Pryor (trombone); Caleb Palmiter (bass); Steve Foley (drums).
||Destination Anywhere CD (1996) |
Brenda Kahn albums If one were to strip Bob Dylan's 1966 classic Blonde on Blonde of its beautiful and surreal rants about relationships, the result would be Brenda Kahn's Destination Anywhere. In "Spoon," the narrator's boyfriend is addicted to drugs, while in "Yellow Sun," the female protagonist is a "walking hit and run." Kahn seems to feel that relationships are hopeless, but ...

||Lach's Antihoot: Live From The Fort At Sidewalk Cafe CD |
Brenda Kahn CD discography If you visited New York's East Greenwich Village in the '90s and wanted to hear some talented unknowns, one of the places to visit was the Sidewalk Café. Because Lach did the booking, the Sidewalk was best known for anti-folk and singer/songwriters -- although Lach also booked everything from jazz to the occasional country act. Anti-folk, however, is the main focus of this 1996 CD, which contains performances by over a dozen unknowns (unknown in 1996, anyway) at the Sidewalk. Not all of the performances are ...
