More About Carol Bui
Tacoma, Washington’s Carol Bui took up drums and Middle Eastern dance over the years since her last album, and these new pursuits play vital roles on Bui’s upcoming third record Red Ship. The album is set for release on March 8th, 2011 on Bui’s own Ex Oh Records and while she has yet to be approached to blog about Middle Eastern Dance, Bui recently discussed being a new percussionist with Modern Drummer HERE.
Like Red Ship’s lead single “Mira: You’re Free With Me” released last November, the new track “‘Geisha’ Means ‘Open-minded’” is a festive, fiery blend of celebratory Middle Eastern and North African percussion coupled with progressive pop melodic tendencies. My Old Kentucky Blog debuted the new song today HERE previously proclaimed Bui’s last album the completion of the rock trifecta that also includes Liz Phair’s Exile In Guyille and PJ Harvey’s Rid of Me.
The provocative content, lush production (once again by TJ Lipple of Aloha), and unique arrangements demonstrate what Bui chooses to term “the primitive means of expressing joy.” She explains by asking, “What did people do to make music and express happiness back when there weren’t sophisticated instruments around? They hit things! And sang! And danced! This record is to invoke that spirit.”
