Label: Filthy Bonnet Recording Co.
Sister Kinderhook explores Colonial themes and the history of Rasputina's settled home. Melora Creager states 'I am living in a countryside settled by the Dutch in the 1600's, so I tried to stay away from modern chords. I became obsessed with Emily Dickinson, and wrote about her life. I also touch on feral children and the Anti-Rent wars of 1844, not to mention the theory that giants were real, but killed each other off in a self-genocidal holocaust.'
Their long awaited studio release was recorded in Hudson, NY during the summer of 1809 and mixed in LA by Creager and Brian Kehew (Moog Cookbook, Fiona Apple, Air).
