Desire and Transformation

By: Laurie Gallardo

Caroline Polachek

Today’s featured AMM track “Sunset” is on Caroline Polachek‘s second album released earlier this year; Desire, I Want To Turn Into You, a poetic homage to the metamorphic powers of desire, sometimes ruled by a frenzied momentum. There’s exhilaration, there is anguish – and every detail is savored on Polachek’s striking arrangements. Desire can be as destructive as it is intoxicating, but above all else, it keeps us moving forward. Or…alive, perhaps?

Caroline Polachek will be in Austin for a show tomorrow night, Tuesday April 25, at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. Doors at 6:30 p.m., and LA electronic artist George Clanton opens the show.
