Artist: GENDRON, MYRIAM
Title: Bric-à-brac/The Small Hours
Format: 7"
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Following her acclaimed 2014 debut LP, Not So Deep As a Well (FTR 146-3LP), Montreals Myriam Gendron has created musical settings for another pair of Dorothy Parker poems -- Bric a Brac and The Small Hours. The slow, sensuously beautiful combination of Myriams voice and guitar, combined with dolorous genius of Parkers words is as intimate as ever. The pairing is seamless and natural, conveying an instant warmth that is a wonderful way to see out the winter, hailing the spring on our doorstep, with hints of the endless circle of seasons to follow. With a letterpressed sleeve and insert by the brilliant Kiva Tanya Stimac of Popolo Press, this record is a rare and special object." --Byron Coley, 2015

Artist: GENDRON, MYRIAM
Title: Not So Deep as a Well (Myriam Gendron Sings Dorothy Parker)
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
2016 version on black vinyl. "The debut LP by Montreals Myriam Gendron is one of 2014s signature releases. Feeding Tube had previously been made aware of Myriam when she performed at the Michael Hurley cover tune showcase at the Casa del Popolo. That event, tied to lOie de Cravans publication of The Words to the Songs of Michael Hurley, introduced Myriam as a wonderful if spectral guitarist and singer, whose signature sound was as light as it was intoxicating. Her next performance was an event including the American poet Charles Plymell, and she debuted a set of material based on the poems of Dorothy Parker. Everyone was blown away. Plymell and Gerard Malanga were effusive in their praise of her work, and when a tape fell into the hands of Richard Meltzer, he agreed that Myriams approach to the material attained a singularity of loss that had not yet been approached. The set was a stun gun, set on its highest possible notch. It blew away anything similar, and achieved a wordy beauty that both buggered description and celebrated itself. Parkers poetry -- though little-known in comparison to her prose -- offers many possibilities of both beauty and humor. Myriam grabs every edge availed to her, and does so beautifully. This album glows with holism and is one of the most beautiful evocations of times past and present and future you will hear. Edition of 500." - Byron Coley.
