    Pele Gets Her Own Book

    Sunday, March 25, 2007 | 06:38 UTC | Posted by Beth | Releases

    Tori once described Boys for Pele as a sonic novel, and soon there will be a book based on the album. The good people at 33 1/3, who produce a series of nonfiction books that examine individual albums, will release a volume in 2008 or 2009 devoted to Boys for Pele. The author will be Elizabeth Merrick, whose past work includes her novel Girly and an anthology of short stories called This is Not Chick Lit. In the meantime, check out the full list of upcoming 33 1/3 books.

    In her blog, Merrick writes:

    It’s true: I’m writing a book about Boys for Pele for the amazing 33 1/3 series that Continuum Press publishes. How much fun is that? So fun.

    I hate it when people (especially women) roll their eyes at that album, saying, “Oh god I loved Little Earthquakes but Pele is so indulgent.” If that’s you and I’m offending you, sorry! Come to a writing class, plug into your intuitive brain, and then listen to it again and see whatcha think. I think that response has everything to do with blocking out the intuition. If you hate it for other reasons, let me know, however—always open to things I haven’t heard a million times over.

    Thanks, Rocket_ships, for staying up late to send this one in.

    U.S. Toriphile Offers Early Review of ADP

    Saturday, March 24, 2007 | 23:54 UTC | Posted by Beth | Reviews

    American Toriphile Tyler was recently lucky enough to hear American Doll Posse from start to finish. The full review is here and mentions a few songs we haven’t heard much about until now, including “Roosterspur Bridge” and “Fat Slut.”

    Some of the highlights:

    • Tyler calls this Tori’s “most rock influenced album,” and rawer-sounding than her most recent albums
    • “Roosterspur Bridge” and “Father’s Son” recall classic Tori
    • “Fat Slut” sounds “like the bastard child of ‘She’s Your Cocaine’”

    "Big Wheel" Rolls To Radio April 2

    Saturday, March 24, 2007 | 23:40 UTC | Posted by Beth | Releases,TV/Radio/Web

    It looks like “Big Wheel” will be the first single from American Doll Posse, at least in terms of radio airplay. Starting April 2, the song will be added to AAA radio stations, according to Triplearadio.com.

    Michael, thanks for letting us know.

    take40.com: "wait ... who's tori amos?"

    Friday, March 23, 2007 | 23:21 UTC | Posted by Violet | Minutiae

    Website take40.com is right on the cutting edge of the Tori News scene. According to a news article posted on their website today, “Singer Tori Amos is working on a new album, ‘American Doll Posse’, which will apparently be ready for release next year.” Woohoo! But hang on … that’s not all. “Before the album release, Amos’ record company will put out a best of style compilation called ‘The Piano’. It will feature singles, remixes, alternative versions and live songs, and will be released later this year.”

    Holy crap, are you guys as excited as we are?!?!?!!!!

    C’mon, kids, hold hands and stay with the group.

    [Update Mar 26: Toriphile Mooky contacted Take40 to let them know about their error. Take40 responded, “Thanks for that! Our bad… the source we took the story from was misprinted!”]

    The Real ADP Cover. Finally. Probably.

    Friday, March 23, 2007 | 22:50 UTC | Posted by Beth | Releases

    Amazon.com has updated its American Doll Posse page with new art — the same art that started floating around last week, mind you — and this is probably the official album cover for the standard version of the new CD. Amazon is, however, still not posting a tracklist.

    Tori’s MySpace page is featuring this same graphic under the music player (which is currently playing Wednesday’s audio message about the Posse blog hunt) AND the tracklisting for ADP.

    Oodles of thanks to Dardo, Greg, Michael, and Alex for letting us know!

    Matt's Blog Drums Up Tour Excitement

    Friday, March 23, 2007 | 22:32 UTC | Posted by Beth | Them,Touring

    Matt Chamberlain’s latest blog entry describes — in impressively geeky detail — the custom drum set he’s putting together for the upcoming tour:

    One thing that has been going on that I am really excited about is I have drumbuilder extrordinaire (sic) Ronn Dunnett building me a titanium shelled ’70s era Drumkit for the upcoming Tori Amos tour. The sizes are all classic depths—24” kick—13” rack 8” Piccolo/bongo tom—16” 18” floor toms—28“x10” side kick—8” Piccolo Snare—6 1/2“x14” Ludwig Chief TI snare. The rest of the rig will be a Midi Kat pad with a Mac Laptop running Ableton Live. The Cymbals are a variety of Istanbul Agop and Pieces of Greg Keplinger Hammered Metal.

    Thanks, Devin, for the tip.

    Tori On NPR

    Friday, March 23, 2007 | 20:06 UTC | Posted by Violet | Releases,TV/Radio/Web

    Alexander told us about a fun Tori segment on NPR. You can hear bits of “Teenage Hustling” ( oooh, we LIKE it! ) and “Big Wheel”. The part where one of the interviewers says “Uh-oh, eeeoooh” is pretty priceless. [Edit: Tori starts around 26:00.]

    [UPDATE: If you scroll down the page, you can listen to “Big Wheel” in full. The link says “Teenage Hustling,” but it’s wrong.]

    Completely un-Tori-related: stick around after the Tori segment to hear a clip from a truly grooving Delta blues song, “Down In Mississippi,” from the upcoming Mavis Staples album We’ll Never Turn Back.

    Posse Blogs

    Friday, March 23, 2007 | 18:31 UTC | Posted by Violet | Releases,Toriphiles

    Yes, yes, yes, you Toriphiles have managed to find one of the blogs. Good job, detectives! And there’s a new entry posted today.

    We may be able to confirm the remaining blogs once you’ve found them, but don’t ask us where they are. Remember, this is a hunt and you are on your own. The only way we’ll tell is if you find our hidden blog. Mwahahahahaaa! (Hint: We ain’t got no hidden blog.)

    ADP Australian News

    Thursday, March 22, 2007 | 14:58 UTC | Posted by woj | Releases

    JB Hi-Fi, an Australian retailer, is taking pre-orders for American Doll Posse and will be shipping the album on May 18th. However, it’s not clear that is the actual Australian release date as they explain, “the above release date is for online store only due to shipping requirements – in store release date may vary.” Sony BMG Australia has yet to post a release date for the record down under…but at least they know how to flesh out a skimpy press release! (Or did we mention that already?)

    Interestingly, JB Hi-Fi’s listing idenitifies the album as a double-CD release, with the track list, including “Posse Bonus”, “Smokey Joe” and “Dragon”, split between “Body and Soul” and “Father’s Son”. While this could be the special edition with the DVD, it could also be something completely different for the Australian market.

    Thanks to Alana for the tip!
