Joan As Police Woman - Real Life Real Life
Pop Colored Vinyl CSDLP 1114 Cobraside
Sealed 2007 Limited Edition Gatefold Colored Vinyl (Sorry, We Don't Know Which Color). Black Line Through Barcode. "Joan Wasser Spent Most Of The '90s And 2000s Playing With Everyone From The Dambuilders To Antony And The Johnsons To Jeff Buckley (With Whom She Was Involved When He Died), But Of All The Projects She's Been Involved In, Joan As Police Woman Is The The Finest. Real Life Seems Like An Immediately Brilliant Debut, But, As Is Usually The Case, Years Of Experience Went Into It. You Can Hear It In Wasser's Voice, Womanly And Raspy; In The Way She And The Rest Of The Band Fuse Soul, Post-Punk, And '70s-Style Singer/Songwriter Pop Into Something Familiar, Unique, And Seemingly Effortless; And In The Remarkable Vulnerability And Strength On Display Throughout. Real Life Is An Almost Eerily Flawless Album, But As Intense As It Is, It's Also Incredibly Comforting. This Album Is Necessary."-AMG... more details
Joan As Police Woman - Deep Field Deep Field
Pop New - LP PIASR 231 Play It Again Sam
Sealed 2011 2LP Gatefold Original. “Joan Wasser's First Joan As Police Woman Album, Real Life, Mourned The Loss Of Her Lover, Jeff Buckley, While Her Second, To Survive, Mourned The Loss Of Her Mother. The Deep Field, However, Finds Her Alone But Not Lonely, Still Searching For Something And Finding Beauty And Even Happiness, If Not Answers. Wasser Reunited With Producer Bryce Goggin For This Set Of Songs, But The Guests That Popped Up On Her Previous Albums Are Notably Absent, As Is Much Of The Sadness That Made Real Life And To Survive As Wrenching As They Were Compelling.” – Heather Phares, AMG... more details
Joan As Police Woman - The Classic The Classic
Pop New - LP PIASR685 Play It Again Sam
Sealed 2013 2LP Gatefold Original Includes CD Of Album. “Songwriters And Musicians Have Long Used Emotional Turmoil As A Source Of Inspiration, But On The Classic -- Which Nods To '60s And '70s Soul With Its Sound And Title -- Joan Wasser Proves That Happiness Can Make For Smart, Relatable Songs Too. Even Though This Is Easily Her Most Joyous Album, It Isn't Completely New Territory. Joan As Police Woman's Previous Albums Showed That Wasser Can Set Loss, Grief, And Acceptance To Song Like Few Others And Also Had Uplifting Moments That Broke Through Like Sunbeams. And While Plenty Of Singers -- Most Notably Amy Winehouse's Mod Neo-Soul And Chan Marshall In Her Memphis-Flavored Era -- Have Revisited This Kind Of Sound, Wasser Puts Her Own Stamp On It. The Classic Is Full Of Smoky Vocals And Slinky Melodies That Are Unmistakably Hers; They're Just Lit Up. The Results Are Some Of Her Most Accessible Music Yet, Such As The Radiant Closing Track, "Ask Me. The Mix Of Clarity And Sensuality In Wasser's Songwriting Makes The Classic's Message -- That Happiness Is An Active Choice Rather Than A Passive State -- All The More Dynamic. The Album's Best Songs Aren't About Being Happy, But What It Takes To Be Ready For Happiness. On The Bold Opener, "Witness," Wasser Depicts Her Self-Defeating Thoughts As "A Tape That's Played Forever"; "Good Together" Dispels The Nostalgia Around An Old Flame With A Massive, Cobweb-Clearing Beat; And "What Would You Do" Underscores Her Impatience With People And Situations That Don't Work. Joan As Police Woman Takes Almost As Many Musical Risks As Emotional Ones On The Classic, Particularly On Lengthy Tracks Like "Get Direct" And "New Year's Day," But This Bravery Is Usually Rewarded, And Rewarding. While The Album's Brightness May Take Some Getting Used To, Listeners Who Love Her Music For How Well She Expresses Feelings That Are Universal Yet Hard To Articulate Will Appreciate How Vividly The Classic Captures Joy And What It Takes To Get It.” Heather Phares, AMG.... more details
