Cans of Worms
RECiPe for indie folk: A healthy dose of Leonard Cohen or Nick Drake inspired acoustic darkness. A dollop of pop sensibilities a la Liz Phair. A pinch of Geraldine Fibbers style angst. Whisk together. Heat until sonic. Consume and be soothed. Cans of Worms was released at the end of 1997 and has a lush, full sound, both edgy and spooky. Though RTP has written much material since it's release, the band still performs many of the songs from this record. Since 1995, Ramona the Pest has been luring music fans across the country with a lush and compelling sound. Haunting, melodic and mesmerizing, RTP has invited comparisons to PJ Harvey, Kristin Hersch and the Cowboy Junkies. Hypnotic live shows center around the captivating voice of Valerie Esway and the sonic guitar tapestries of Lucio Menegon. Whether capturing the crowd as a duo or rocking out as a full band - mixing in distorted violin, horn, accordion, ukulele, and sublime rhythms - RTP performances remain fresh, interesting and exciting.
