One of the most important, yet unsung women in rock ‘n roll, Carla Bozulich, is back with her umpteenth project Evangelista, a masterful experiment in heavy, edgy wonder. Having proven herself as frontwoman for some of the most influential underground bands around — that is, pioneering electro noise combo Ethyl Meatplow, the twisted gothic twang of the Geraldine Fibbers and her Northwest conceptual work Scarnella — Bozulich has also taken on balls of steel solo projects like a song for song cover of Willie Nelson’s Red Headed Stranger (to which Nelson himself contributed some vocals) and fostered collaborations with the likes of Mike Watt, Lydia Lunch and Thurston Moore. By remaining fearless, unpredictable and never allowing herself to be pigeonholed, Bozulich is one of those rare working musicians who makes art for the sake of art — commercial viability be damned. With Thrones, Two Ton Boa, Resistor. MA'CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
