Album Notes
Cloud Girl, Carol Lipnik's new collection of strange songs and haunting vocals, was inspired by her love for the floaty spookiness of turn of the century parlor songs and the grittiness of Pre War Berlin Cabaret and French chanson. Cloud Girl features the electric violin wizardry of co-producer Jacob Lawson and the wuritzer organ grindings of Dred Scott.

Hungary has declared Marta Sebestyen a national treasure; Brooklyn should affirm Carol Lipnik's brilliance in a similar capacity.

WCVE-FM Richmond, VA

Possesing the vocal prowess of a sufi, the purity of a girl folksinger, the power of soul divas plus a plain love of popcraft... Carol Lipnik might be the best vocalist we have in New York (or anywhere).
Richard Mortifoglio

Carol Lipnik's atmospheric, carnivalesque sound has won them a loyal following. If Coney Island had a cabaret scene, Lipnik would be its queen
Time Out New York

Lipnik's moody voice conveys the feeling of being stuck at midnight in the middle of the winter in Coney Island, the neighborhood of her youth.
John Donohue
The New Yorker

Carol Lipnik's Spookarama evokes a Coney Island of the ear, full of ghostly carnivalesque moments
The New York Times

a soundtrack to a lost soul's lonely stroll down a seedy New Orleans street, there lulled into a derelict brothel by Lipnik's eerie multi-octave wail and Spookarama's brand of blues, mixing voodoo and psychedelic. The music steers for melancholy by way of the carnival-esque and the creepy - no surprise, since Lipnik grew up by the defunct funhouses and rickety rides of Coney Island.

To Die Dreaming: Sonir Morando
The cover image on the album tells all that's to come: a roller coaster car poised at the apex of Coney Island's Cyclone is about to take you for a wide ride! From the mid-way whimsy of "Freakhouse Blues" to the twisted tango of "Sonir Morando," Lipnik's spare yet rich arrangements are quirky, fun, and ultra-imaginative. "Falling / Floating" is a little masterpiece whose atmospheric tenderness will break your heart, falling through clouds.

Mahogany Bloom

Listen: Who put this beating bird inside my ribcage?
Who writes a line line that (title)? This is an amazing CD - each track is like a short film, and could be the soundtrack for a Wim Wenders or Jim Jarmusch work. The songs are stunning, and Miss Lipnik's expansive voice carries the music into the beyond. Soaring violin lines and elegant piano lines pull you back in time...and there's lots of fun to be had along the way, too. These are great stories and ideas painted by musicians full of spirit. While cabaret-oriented,the music never feels derivative and some of the gems will blow you away. To be enjoyed and treasured - recommended!
