where all the little songs go when they die LP cover

Illustration by Peter LaBier


WHERE ALL THE LITTLE SONGS GO WHEN THEY DIE is the debut album by Prudence Teacup.  A scrapbook of song poems, field recordings, lullabies, and bedroom anthems all lovingly recorded and produced by Alfra Martini.  Somewhere between the primitive explorations of Ariel Pink and the dreamy cabaret music of Julee Cruz,  Prudence Teacup is a startling original voice who walks a tight rope between vintage song stylings and modern sound collage.


The limited edition vinyl release includes a free download code of the album, both the CD and LP include a 20 page, illustrated lyric book.


The Pierces; Cat Power; Nico; Niobe; Fovea Hex; Hearts Of Palm; Kria Brekkan; Beach House; Alela Diane ... nothing comes close. . . I love the way the songs last only as long as they have to, many of them just under a minute or so. No Milk-Eyed Mender-ing here. No elephants in the room. Just an art-sprawl full of Laurie Anderson and Eno, complete with a 20-page book full of Mount Eerie-esque visual ruminations on self and society. Never predictable, never static unless the crackle in the background demands it.
