Annie Lewandowski – composer, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist – has been writing and performing under her Powerdove alias since late 2007. It started as a solo venture, but John Dieterich of Deerhoof and Thomas Bonvalet of L’Ocelle Mare added their creative flair starting with third record, Do You Burn?. They have now released a number of dazzling records and last year’s War Shapes brilliantly straddled the worlds of free improvisation and frazzle, art-pop. Annie may describe her music as “eclectic-folk” but it’s always something more – sometimes beautiful, sometimes jarring but always transcendental.
