Posted by The Afterglow Staff on March 14, 2009 at 1:00 PM

Sparked by an e-mail sent to him from Afterglow member potentialsinner, John Philip Shenale updated his MySpace page with an entry about his work on Tori Amos’ new record, Abnormally Attracted To Sin :

source : JPS’s MySpace

I wanted to xpand alittle on an email i received, asking about Tori’s new record “Abnormally Attracted To Sin” and my involvement .
I worked on 4 songs for the record.
All 4 of Tori’s creations , consumed me for the last 3 months of 08.
We used an octet for the string section on 2 songs ( 4 violins, 2 violas 2 celli.
Various synths, samplers, processes, Hammonds (A100 and solovox) and Wurly were used at times, played by Tori and me.
Tori played Bosy on 3.
Matt and Jon played on all 4.
One song i arranged the rythym section, keys and strings around Tori .
Then Matt and Jon added there magic later.
This process finished in Cornwall in December.
The ending of a wonderful record and an emotional year for me.
Well thats it for now.
I will put up more text and pics after the release.

Tori Amos to release ‘Abnormally Attracted To Sin’ on May 19

Posted by The Afterglow Staff on March 10, 2009 at 5:12 PM

Abnormally Attracted to Sin coverTori Amos will release her Universal Republic debut album, Abnormally Attracted To Sin, on May 19, 2009. AOL Music’s will premiere today, Tuesday, March 10 the album’s cover art and tracklisting, as well as an interview where Tori discusses the record.

Tori will offer a sneak-peek at some of the songs from Abnormally Attracted To Sin at this year’s South By Southwest Music Conference in Austin, TX when she will headline the Universal Republic Records Showcase. The showcase, one of the most anticipated events in the conference’s two decade-plus history, is on Thursday, March 19, and will be held at the historic club La Zona Rosa.

A DVD of corresponding ‘visualettes’ for each track will accompany the deluxe version of Abnormally Attracted To Sin. These interlocking episodic films bring to life the narrative arc of the album. The footage was captured over the past year and shot with a noir twist in HD and Super 8.

The album was produced by Tori and features longtime contributors Matt Chamberlain on drums, Jon Evans on bass, and Mac Aladdin on guitars. Once again Tori is joined in the studio by Mark Hawley and Marcel Van Limbeek who recorded and mixed the album at Martian Engineering in Cornwall, England. Abnormally Attracted To Sin is the singer’s tenth studio album, and is sure to be regarded by fans and critics as another innovative chapter in the artist’s trailblazing career.

For nearly two decades, Tori Amos’ stark lyrical flourishes and inspired musicianship have shaped the musical landscape.  She is also considered one of the most emotionally powerful live artists in music today.  Her most recent world tour, launched in the summer of 2007, with media platforms such as the BBC who lauded both her live show and album as ‘returning Tori Amos back to the forefront of a genre she defined…still pushing her own boundaries.’

Tori Amos Reveals Sinful Cover Art, Tracklisting

Posted by The Afterglow Staff on at 6:26 AM

toriamos_aatts1Tori Amos is in a good mood when she phones Spinner from her Cornwall, England studio. She owes her glee, in part, to a white chocolate chip cookie, which she informs us her 8-year-old daughter, Natashya, baked for her. “Husband didn’t marry me for my baking,” she laughs.

It’s just weeks away from Amos’ scheduled performance at SXSW, where she’ll unveil new tunes from her tenth studio album, ‘Abnormally Attracted to Sin,’ due May 19. In addition to debuting the album cover and tracklist with Spinner, Amos discussed her new work, how to divvy up the Democrats and Republicans, and what she considers to be the greatest sin of all.

What was the impetus behind this new collection?
I’m drawn to questioning what traditional authorities have defined sin to be. As a minister’s daughter, I’ve been exposed to the traditional belief system. [Sin] has been used to shame and control people. If you’re controlled by a religious structure, then you’re going to have a very different outlook on life and what you’re open to than if you’re not controlled by these old, crumbling concepts.
