The always spell-binding Amanda Palmer’s new single, “Drowning in the Sound” is yet another chamber pop masterpiece from the insanely-talented singer/songwriter. From its pummeling percussion to its sonorous, in-your-face piano notes, it commands your ears to listen the hell up on full alert. It’s as beautiful as it is brash, like a butterfly with wings as sharp and dangerous as razor blades, hence our being compelled to make it a song of the day.
