The mighty Amanda Palmer returned this week with her first record in four years, one that was produced thanks to a bank-breaking Kickstarter campaign. While I give her loads of credit for that very social media-centric effort I'm not sure how I feel about her decision to crowdsource a band for live gigs and basically pay them nothing. That kind of thing seems to be the new paradigm, but as somebody who -- aside from the stuff I write here which I'd do regardless of donations made to the site -- refuses to work without getting paid for it in some way, I think it's a bit of a low blow.
Regardless, as expected this is a damn terrific song from America's foremost punk cabaret queen.
Here's The Killing Type.
