Carol Bui In The Press

“...culturally unique and universal, beautiful and harrowing, frequently within a single song...” – My Old Kentucky Blog

“...soaring melodic hard rock with engrossing sincerity -- as Bob Mould has proven, you can’t B.S. a cello.” – Pitchfork

“...an impressive torrent of crunchy guitar distortion...” – Pop Matters

Washington’s Carol Bui plays guitar like a girl -- a pithy, no-B.S., hard-rocking girl...” – Baltimore City Paper


More About Carol Bui

Tacoma, Washington’s Carol Bui took up drums (see her entry on Modern Drummer’s blog HERE) and Middle Eastern dance over the years since her last album, and these new pursuits play vital roles on Bui’s upcoming third record Red Ship. The album is set for release on March 8th, 2011 on Bui’s own Ex Oh Records and Bui will be taking on a handful of rare live performances upon the album’s release.

For those attending South By Southwest, Bui can be seen at the “DC Does TX” event (Bui is originally from the DC area) on March 16th as well as My Old Kentucky Blog’s yearly party on March 18th. See below for more details and a complete list of Carol Bui tour dates.

The provocative content, lush production (once again by TJ Lipple of Aloha along with Bui herself), and unique arrangements on Red Ship demonstrate what Carol Bui chooses to term “the primitive means of expressing joy.”  She explains by asking, “What did people do to make music and express happiness back when there weren’t sophisticated instruments around? They hit things! And sang! And danced! This record is to invoke that spirit.”

Carol Bui is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
