New Album: Thatched Roof Glass House by Alpha Cat
"(Elizabeth McCullough of Alpha Cat has produced) the stunning Thatched Roof Glass House, with musical co-conspirators Fred Smith from Television as co-producer (on Black Hole), guitarist Doug Pettibone from the Lucinda Williams and John Mayer orbit, Reggie McBride (Stevie Wonder, Elton John) on bass and Jason Harrison Smith on drums, who has laid down the rhythmic foundation for such musical luminaries as Albert Lee, Kelly Sweet and Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson.
The musical results speak for themselves. The NYC punk-pop aesthetic shines through with attention and detail.
The music is both poppy and underground performance art at the same time. It is also done with the confidence and shine of a woman who has lived life and faced hard times emotionally and physically.
Young girls in the same musical fields usually have to manufacture such emotional musical content. Alpha Cat just opens her mouth and it pours (out) with an authority 23-year olds do not have the life experience to muster.."

Alpha Cat “Thatched Roof Glass House” by Rob W.
"The quality is rich, the mixing and mastering are sublime. The lyrics are a mixture of astute quips and conundrums. The singing, mixing, and production offered in this album are crisp in quality, creatively inspiring, and sonically meeting industry specifications. The melodies and cadence for the duration of this project is majestic. The songwriting is on a prolific level, think REM, Pink Floyd, and Bob Dylan. Songs that are cryptic with profound meaning digging beyond the surface to grasp a deeper understanding. The New York based band Alpha Cat is armed with exceptional talent to create thought provoking music, and it’s on full display on their latest album titled “Thatched Roof Glass House”.
