Like the Cyclone, Life in a Blender is a long-time Brooklyn institution that has been exhilarating – and possibly nauseating – audiences for years. Singer Don Ralph belts out his off-kilter musings backed by cellist Dave Moody, guitarist Al Houghton, bassist Mark Lerner, violinist Rebecca Weiner, drummer Ken Meyer, and horn player Mel Melon. Having toured from Toronto to Berlin to Chicago to Seattle and back to New York, Life in a Blender has developed a devout fan base that is as broad and fat as the underbelly of the US and Europe combined. Over the course of four albums, this orchestra of the bizarre and melodic has collaborated with the likes of John Linnell (They Might Be Giants), Ralph Carney (Tom Waits band), James Mastro (The Bongos), and sitarist Chris Rael (Church of Betty). Life in a Blender has played on bills with NRBQ, Camper Van Beethoven, the Buzzcocks, Scrawl, and even Billy Idol, who sucks. “For nearly forever, Life in a Blender has been the secret jewel of New York City; their shows always frantic and feisty without being venomous, their songs merry and melodic without being vapid,” wrote Camden Joy, author of Lost Joy and contributor to Village Voice and Spin. “Still as inventive, intelligent, and invigorating as ever, Life in a Blender has a new warmth, an immense and soulful complexity of sound. Highly recommended.” The New Yorker: “Shows by local quirk rock favorites Life in a Blender showcase the band’s absurdist sensibility and oddball, prop-laden spectacles.” Billboard: “An alternative five-piece with a curious sense of humor and a knack for the catchy pop song.”
