Surely the name Gabriela Kulka isn't too foreign to most Ecto folk. Her vocal range reminds me of Kate Bush—and she plays a mean piano, á la earlier Tori. She's fiercely original, and I think she's fantastic. (Paul J firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
Marcin Kobus—trumpet on "shoes"
A cabaret-feeling album. Very lively. Worthy and interesting but Out far outshines it. "Jealousy" is an especially great track, a harbinger of things to come. (Neile)
Gabriela Kulka—Roland digital piano, Bluthner piano, Steinberg M14, guitar, vocals
Paul, why didn't I listen to you earlier? I could have another few weeks of LOVING this album. Everything Paul says here is true—this is a stupendous album. Creative, idiocyncratic, catchy... I haven't been this immediately hooked by an artist since I discovered Veda.
