Second Spin: Why You Need To Celebrate “Celebration”

Nov 9th, 2006 // 2 Comments

Celebration’s self-titled debut album came out on 4AD last year, but it’s still in heavy rotation around the Idolator flophouse; we love the Baltimore-based trio’s hypnotic, organ-driven songs, and the tension added to them by David Bergander’s razor-wire drumming. Lead singer Katrina Ford, who has a Siouxsiean set of pipes, is an arresting presence both on record and live–in concert, she whirls around whatever crowd she’s playing to, microphone in hand, creating a spectacle that’s on par with her band’s spooky, unsettling music.

    When I heard this last year about the time it came out, I didn’t even realize the singer was a woman until I saw a picture. Now I hear it plain as day, but it’s certainly an unusual voice she’s got.
