Description

THREESOME is a limited edition and compiles the albums; DON'T ASK DON'T TELL, GOT NO STRINGS and MEXICAN STANDOFF.

In 2005, the ever-ambitious Michelle Shocked made a move that put even the most prolific artists to shame, releasing three albums of new material simultaneously. Though all three bear Shocked's unique stamp, they're all radically different from each other. Two are rather conceptual affairs; MEXICAN STANDOFF is a stylistic showdown between T-Bone Walker-style blues and rootsy Mexican music, and GOT NO STRINGS features jazzy, bluegrass-tinged covers of songs from beloved old Disney movies. DON'T ASK DON'T TELL doesn't have any grand theme, and contains the largest amount of the kind of quirky, amiable folk-rock Shocked fans have come to know and love. Taken individually, these three albums are journeys into different musical territories led by the same tour guide. However, THREESOME packages the trio together, and taking the albums as disparate parts of a whole, it becomes all the more apparent both how complex, eclectic, and adventurous Shocked can be, and how consistent her artistic vision remains. In the wake of this rush of creativity, it was truly impossible to predict where the mercurial singer/songwriter would be headed next.

What the critics say...

Uncut (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 - "'Mexican Stand-Off', working both sides of Texas' musical border, has fine moments."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.105) - 3 stars out of 5 - "The first CD, DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL, finds her grooving characteristically between LA boho sophistication and Cajun sweatiness..."
