Team-ups & team-ups! Joan Wasser, a.k.a. Joan As Policewoman, has previously teamed up with the likes of Anohni, Rufus Wainwright, and Lou Reed. Now she’s working with Benjamin Lazar Davis, of Okkervil River, Cuddle Magic, and Bridget Kearney. On October 21st comes Let It Be You, and this month they’re released two videos: “Broke Me In Two” with Wasser on lead vocals, and “Overloaded” with Davis at the front.
For both videos, they’re joined by Fred Armisen, known for both his comedy work (Portlandia, Saturday Night Live) and musical (band leader on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Thatcher-loving punk Ian Rubbish). Centered on a mechanic’s garage somewhere off of a New York tunnel, they flip the script, roles, and sounds.
