Miranda Lee Richards:: Light of X; strange but true

A wonderful sundazed and smoked out glare permeates the music of Miranda Lee Richards on her forthcoming album Light of X (out February 10, 2009). I like the horse grazing on the album cover. Miranda composed all of the material, string arrangements, acoustic guitar, piano and Hammond B3 on the disc. In case you didn’t know: Kirk Hammett taught Miranda her first few guitar chords and she recorded her first demo in the basement of Hammett’s studio. Dave Deresinski, the then manager of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, passed the tape along to BJM singer Anton Newcombe, who asked her to join the group. During that time, friend Ondi Timoner was filming the BJM for DIG! Small world. Check out Miranda’s Imeem playlist to get a better sense of her.
