From the Newsprint section in FADER 51:
Cleveland’s Baby Dee has amassed a hefty list of admirers, a tiny albeit esteemed portion of which joined forces for the recording of her Drag City debut Safe Inside the Day. Superwolf duo Matt Sweeney and Will Oldham took key producing reins for the multi-instrumentalist’s third outing, an autobiographical disc brimming with Vaudevillian songs of odd but never faltering beauty. “Everyone that would come in would hear it and immediately get it,” Sweeney says. “I feel like we were all playing at levels that we had never played before. This music sounds like it’s been around for a thousand years.” -David Bevan
Another admirer is awesomest dude in the universe Andrew WK, who, in preparation for Baby Dee’s show tonight at Joe’s Pub, sat down for a candid interview with the artist for FADER TV. We couldn’t bring ourselves to edit any of it out, so watch Part 1 here and click more for Parts 2 and 3.
