ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Sinister and winsome at the same time” – Washington Post

“Whimsical, clever songwriting that can engage audience members of any age” – Washington City Paper

Dr. Dour and Peach tell the personal stories of lovesick mummies, giant lizards, bargain-hunting zombies, and other hapless creatures of the night in a cabaret cocktail of original songs on touch guitar, cello, and other less savory instruments.

An accomplished ethno-crypto-zoo-musicologist, Dr. Dour has collected countless stories from monsters all over the world, and is slowly turning his vast store of tales into songs. Somewhere along the way, he acquired Peach, who now travels with him, acting as tour manager, accompanist, and all-around helper.

Together, they create music that lurks somewhere between Vincent Price and Tom Lehrer, with a dash of Alice Cooper. Known for their gleeful live performances, the duo's first album melds intricate composition, genre-bending playfulness, and morosely theatrical flare.
