    Amanda Palmer is a singer, writer, pianist, activist and blogger who simultaneously embraces and explodes traditional frameworks of music, theatre, community and art. She first came to prominence as one half of the Boston-based punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, earning global applause for their wide-ranging theatricality and inventive song craft.

    Her solo career has proven equally brave and boundless.

    'There Will Be No Intermission' is Palmer's third solo LP, and first in six years. This release is the multi-faceted artist's most powerful and personal collection to date, with songs that tackle the big questions: life, death, grief and how we make sense with it all. While the themes may be dark, the album's overall sonic and lyrical mood is one of triumph in the face of life's most ineffably shitty circumstances.
    Recorded over a single month in Los Angeles by Grammy Award-winner John Congleton, 'There Will Be No Intermission' was entirely crowd-funded, this time by 12,000 patrons using Palmer's community hub at

    Alongside the album, Palmer is independently releasing an art book of narrative photography to accompany the album's release.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very different but excellent album from Ms Palmer. Very different from The Dresden Dolls and Amanda Palmer's solo albums. Seemingly autobiographical, it is very introspective with significant angst. Mostly piano and orchestra with a little ukulele. Almost twenty tracks, the last four related to her becoming a mother for the first time in 2015. "A Mother's Confession" is the standout track which I am sure all new parents will relate to. Twenty colour images in a sleeve for no apparent reason. A lyric sheet would have been more useful. I contemplated 3-4 stars on first listen but changed it to five on the second. Not for the start of the party ( play Dresden Dolls instead), more for after the party with a nice Cabernet. Lovely front cover with Ms Palmer's "Map of Tasmania" on full view. Enjoy the total package.
