Biography

"Honey, Mitchell's here." Audiences have noted that this newest emergence of Art Rock is one of the most welcome colors on today's post-indie pallette which can sometimes seem crowded with so many hyphenated genres. Though Gwen Mitchell and her band (Experiment) will Pollock your ears with gobs of jazz, metal, and spatterings of Russian cossack dances, there are not enough hypens to serve their live shows justice. Their performances, which showcases each of their extraordinary versatility as musicaians, are framed by a deep sense of personality and humor that runs throughout their shows. This is truly one of the most refreshing and empowering experiences that Chicago is proud to call its own.

VESSEL

SOMEONE SPUN THIS HEAD AROUND THIS ROOM
SOMETHING DROVE THIS BODY DOWN THE STAIRS
WHEN I WOKE TO FIND ME, I WAS STNADING BY MY BEDSIDE, AND HEARD A LOT OF PEOPLE SCREAM MY NAME

WHAT'S ALL THIS FUSS FUSS FUSS
OVER THIS FLESH FLESH FLESH
WHY CAN'T YOU SEE SEE SEE THAT I'M RIGHT HERE
WHILE YOU WERE MOURNING AND WERE WEEPING
I WAS UP HERE KEEPING AND BRINING KOSMIC RAVEL INTO VIEW

I AM BREATH AND YOU ARE BREATHING
I'M THE TEAR THAT YOU ARE WEEPING
THIS VOICE IS A MOST POTENT POTION
SELDOM HEARD WITHOUT EMOTION...WHERE ARE YOU?

STICK ANOTHER NEEDLE IN MY ARM
DRAW ANOTHER SCALPEL DOWN MY GUT
REACH YOUR HAND A LITTLE FURTHER IN
AND TELL ME IF YOU THINK YOU FEEL MY SOUL

WHAT'S ALL THIS FUSS FUSS FUSS
OVER THIS FLESH FLESH FLESH
WHY CAN'T YOU TRUST TRUST TRUST THAT I'M RIGHT HERE
THE SPACE YOU'RE HOLDING, NOW ENFOLDING
KNOWING ME YOUR BRIGHTNESS SHOWING
SPEAKING ME THROUGH WORDS WITHOUT A KNOTTED TONGUE

I AM BREATH AND YOU ARE BREATHING
I'M THE LOVE THAT YOU KEEP GIVING
I'M THE DANCE AND YOU, THE DANCER
I'M THE QUESTION WITHOUT ANSWER...WHERE ARE YOU?

WHAT IS ALL THIS THAT WE'RE AFTER
YOU THE BELLY, I, THE LAUGHTER
WHAT IS TONGUE WITHOUT THE FLAVOR
SOMETIMES FRAGRANCE WITHOUT FLOWER...WHERE ARE YOU?
