30 Day Album Challenge Day 13: An album that tells a single, coherent story

Evelyn Evelyn- Evelyn Evelyn

Amanda Palmer’s third appearance on this list. Uhhhm… what can I say? I pretty much enjoy everything she touches to some extent. Evelyn Evelyn was her little side project with Jason Webley and the pair of them released this album in 2010. It tells the tale of Evelyn and Evelyn, conjoined sisters who are trying to put out a record. 

Yup.

That’s it.

They work at a freakshow in a circus and befriend an elephant and set up a myspace account. 

All throughout the album there is spoken bits, where Evelyn and Evelyn tell us more of their story. 

You follow the twins from the day they were born when “Saint Elmo’s Fire was at the top of the charts.” to the end where they cover Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart on ukulele… and it breaks my heart every time.
