Songwriter-singer-multi-instrumentalist-improviser-engineer Samara Lubelski is not what anyone could call 'pigeonholed' in the climate of contemporary music. She has split her time between Germany, where she works with the psychedelic group Metabolismus, and her Lower East Side home base, playing and recording with a who's who of the art-punk and freely-improvised folk scenes (Tower Recordings, Hall of Fame, Matt Valentine), for she has been brewing a rich cup of aesthetic ingredients. Her first solo outing, 1997's In the Valley (Child of Microtones) was a major installment in the recorded legacy of experimental string music, a dense exploration of drones and resonance. Lubelski followed this last year with a full-band recording of lush psychedelic folk-rock for The Fleeting Skies (Social Registry/De Stijl), a seeming - but not unheralded - about face.
