Noted for her critically acclaimed albums, visits to NPR and A Prairie Home Companion, as well as The Washington Post saying she ...has all the makings to be the great singer-songwriter of the century, Nellie McKay pays homage to the 60's with her new album, My Weekly Reader. From Haight Ashbury to Greenwich Village to Carnaby Street, My Weekly Reader (in collaboration with famed Beatles Engineer, Geoff Emerick) features unlikely gems from Country Joe, Moby Grape, Frank Zappa, Richard Farina, Crosby Stills and Nash, The Beatles and The Kinks.
It's important for us to be aware and not succumb to what (jazzman) Dave Frishberg has referred to as weapons of mass distraction; adds Nellie. These songs come out of a time of less cynicism - back in the 60's the darker things in society were balanced by a certain innocence and hope.
