Charming Hostess Discography of CDs


Bowls Project Bowls Project CD (2010)
CD $15.89 Buy It  Details
Charming Hostess music CDs Charming Hostess have something interesting in mind with The Bowls Project. The inspiration comes from texts found buried in demon bowls 1,500 years ago in Babylon (modern-day Iraq). These aren't the only things here (there's also a take on the traditional "Prickle Eye Bush" [or "Gallows Pole"], for instance), but these texts do make for particularly fascinating and spooky listening, especially as they come set in a variety of frames, mostly veering to the avant-garde although there are definite touches of slightly skewed roots music as part of the proceedings. There are plenty of guests to bolster the six-piece band that's led by Jewlia Eisenberg. The texts here all have a Jewish heritage, offering a cohesion to the project. It's challenging, bringing the women who had these inscriptions made back to life and giving them a modern context. ~ Chris Nickson Recording information: Polymorph, Oakland, ...
Sarajevo Blues Sarajevo Blues CD (2004)
CD $16.49 Buy It  Details
Charming Hostess discography Charming Hostess, a vocal trio comprised of Jewlia Eisenberg (who wrote all of the music for this set), Marika Hughes, and Cynthia Taylor, performs Jewish traditional songs, a trio of poems turned into music, and ten pieces that form the "Sarajevo Blues." The lyrics are often political due to the very difficult life for the average citizen in the land that used to be united as Yugoslavia. The three voices are haunting and adventurous, holding onto the tradition ...

Charming Hostess songs Charming Hostess is the finest anarchist-feminist-polyphonic-polyrhythmic-polymorphously perverse-balkan-blue-ish-Jewish-freak-funk-punk band working in America today. Led by hyperactive troublemaker Jewlia Eisenberg's (who made a fearsome impression with her Tzadik CD debut), the Hostesses here are an extraordinary 7 piece band: tight, a little rockish, comprising bass, drums, guitar, fiddle, various horns, accordion and other occasional instruments - but the work is distinguished by the amazing vocal arrangements (everyone sings).
Eat Eat CD (1999)
CD Check Availability  Details
Charming Hostess CD discography A three-member women's chorus of East European-styled vocals is rousingly accompanied by nervous violin, guitar and Old World folk percussion. Charming Hostess' success is in their effective integration of such traditional approaches, with rock motifs and arty, avant-garde dissonance. This singular union is the result of the amalgamation of a female a cappella trio and most of Oakland, CA's experimental rock project Idiot Flesh. Cello, saxophone, flute, didgeridoo, and extra percussion also show up in these wild but effective pieces. The material is a heady mix of beautifully freakish originals and covers of such things as "Won't You ...
