She's Been Trying With Limited Success. To Get Him To Turn Out The Lights & Dance. Cause Like Any Girl All She Wants.That Fickle Little Bitch Romance

The Dresden Dolls kind of remind me of that strange couple at the party that no one dare talk to. Mostly out of fear. Fear that they are cooler than you. Fear that they are more talented than you. And fear that they have a better (read: kinkier) sex life than you do. While I can't shed any insight into what happens behind closed doors, I can confirm that vocalist/pianist Amanda Palmer and drummer Brian Viglione have deftly crafted one of the most intriguing releases of 2006 with Yes, Virginia...
Mixing equal parts pop with their self described punk cabaret, Palmer and Viglione manage to make two instruments and a delicately commanding voice flesh out an entire album of catchy, close to the bone vignettes. For your listening (dis)pleasure:

The Dresden Dolls: Dirty Business

The Dresden Dolls: Sex Changes

The Dresden Dolls: Necessary Evil

The Dresden Dolls: Shores Of California

I saw the Dresden Dolls when they opened for Nine Inch Nails at the Warfield in SF, and they were very good live. The drummer was especially good though, and their stage presence was perfect for their image as well as their style of music.
