Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Since launching last year's powerful queer anthem "U.S. Gay," New York City's Sons Of An Illustrious Father has been on a creative roll. It should be no surprise that their new song "Extraordinary Rendition" lives up to the band's burgeoning hype. Comprised of Josh Aubin, Lilah Larson, and Ezra Miller, they present a piece that's both frenetic and incandescent.

Fused with a slight indie-rock meets Nu-Goth visual aesthetic, the video strikes you as something A24 might have produced in their earlier years. It's individualistic without being pretentious. "Extraordinary Rendition" was created in collaboration with director Rafe Scobey-Thal, while dressed by Colleen Atwood, and choreographed by Miller's mother — acclaimed dancer, Marta Miller.

The New York Time’s has famously called Carletta Sue Kay both “Performance Piece and Elaborate Joke!” Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields with whom Carletta has both performed and recorded, has likened Carletta to Nina Simone, “…without the bitterness!” No matter, when she opens her mouth to sing, lipstick smeared and wig askew, the audience succumbs to her four octave range and powerhouse vocals. Carletta’s debut l.p. Incongruent (Kitten Charmer) covers a wide range of subjects from Joy Division to Eleanor Roosevelt. Conjuring ghosts and dreaming of the apocalypse, Carletta’s next record will explore the realms of the supernatural, death, two-timing and even Hammer Horror Classics.
