JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN's REAL LIFE album goes a long way to laud honesty, trust and beauty, and in doing so lauds her own beauty. You might know Joan from her loud serrated bands The Dambuilders, Black Beetle and Those Bastard Souls. Or playing more subtly and quietly in Antony's Johnsons or Rufus Wainwright's band. Some influences pervade, but this is all together different. It's music that shimmers, torch-song-like, between categories. It feels adjacent to jazz while being deeply soulful. The voice and delivery has raised comparisons to Dusty Springfield, Annette Peacock and Chrissie Hynde. Like Antony, Joan's music seems to have come out of nowhere, and yet feels fully-formed, idiosyncratically individual, all on, and of, it's own.
