About the artists:
On No One Deserves Happiness, The Body’s Chip King and Lee Buford set out to make “the grossest pop album of all time.” The album themes of despair and isolation are delivered by the unlikely pairing of the Body’s signature heaviness and 80s dance tracks. The Body can emote pain like no other band, and their ability to move between the often strict confines of the metal world and the electronic music sphere is on full display throughout No One Deserves Happiness, an album that eludes categorization. More than any of their genre-defying peers, The Body does it without softening their disparate influences towards a middle ground, but instead through a beautiful combining of extremes. No One Deserves Happiness is an album that defies definition and expectations, standing utterly alone.All ages.
The Assembly of Light women’s choir is a ramshackle collection of about twenty women from Providence, RI. They’ve been stealing hours to sing together since late 2008, when composer and singer Chrissy Wolpert invited a few women to her apartment to sing some songs she’d been working on. It went well. They kept coming back. The Assembly of Light is a frequently changing “cast” of women from various backgrounds and degrees of vocal experience and training. The group is about taking shape on its own terms, forming itself without pretense, and bringing on brightness through dark music.
