Matters of the Heart

By: Laurie Gallardo

This afternoon’s Studio 1A performance hosted by Jay Trachtenberg was another winner. Bedouine – the moniker of musician/songwriter/composer Azniv Korkejian – strikes a gothic Americana chord on a level similar to that of her colleagues before her. Names like Nick Drake, Harry Nilsson, and most especially Joni Mitchell tend to pop up in comparison, but know that Korkejian is no pale imitation. Two years after an impressive self-titled debut, the L.A.-based artist followed up with another fantastic release, Bird Songs of a Killjoy, a striking orchestral mix of sixties-styled folk, country funk and a touch of bossa nova, exploring the strengths, the depths, the loneliness of solitude.

Bedouine is in Austin for a performance tonight at Barracuda, 611 E. 7th St. Austin-based artist and longtime AMM favorite Julian Neel is the perfect opener for the show. Doors at 7 p.m. Very recommended.
