And now for something completely different…Twenty-five years in, Chris Rael’s group Church of Betty mixes Indian instrumentation and rhythms with a Western pop sensibility. The group’s new album Swirled World is now available and they will be taking to the road to show it off. Joining them on various stops are friends of Rael’s, Stew and the Negro Problem. (Stew is the mastermind behind the Broadway hit Passing Strange.) Also joining on a few stops will be Dublin Ireland pop sensations Pugwash. The Swirled World track “I Remember You” has been given the video treatment by media artist and filmmaker Joan Grossman. Popdose is pleased to bring you a listen to the music and a first look at this video. You can find out more about Chris Rael and Church of Betty at Rael’s website: http://www.chrisrael.com
