Br'er Finally Gets A Release

Of Shemales and Kissaboos is the debut Br'er album which never had an official US release until now. Originally released only in Europe through Beat is Murder Records, Edible Onion is now distributing a self-released edition of the album.

Primary songwriter Benjamin Schurr describes the album as "an audio coping mechanism" that was necessary to emerge and recover from seven years of prescription medication, sporadic homelessness, and abusive relationships.

Recorded in various houses across Philadelphia between December 2006 and June of 2007, Of Shemales and Kissaboos loosely lays the groundwork for what would become Br'er's defining voice, combining elements of noise, pop, and classical music into tight musical narratives that transmute the base metals of emotional crisis and paralysis into something tangibly cathartic.
