"We never set out to start a band," says Peter Yanowitz, one third of the avant-indie trio Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum. "It feels more like the band started us." Recorded spontaneously for the sheer joy of creation, Princess Goes to the Butterfly Museum's captivating self-titled debut showcases the magic that can happen when three consummate artists commit themselves to fully inhabiting the present, to following their musewithout boundaries or restrictions. The songs here are adventurous, with bold, experimental arrangements that incorporate everything from distorted synth rock and ethereal electronics to dreamy folk and R&B. It's an intoxicating mix, one that transcends genre as it draws equal strength from the remarkably disparate backgrounds of its progenitors.
