Mistress Stephanie and Her Melodic Cat
New dark-cabaret artist Mistress Stephanie And Her Melodic Cat are scratching up a new record, Take That!, to be released February 10 on Pressing Records. The group is made up of Stephanie (the Mistress) Stephens, an actress from Austin, Texas, and guitarist Adam (the Cat) Sultan, formerly of Poi Dog Pondering, Golden Arm Trio and Spank Dance Company. Primarily influenced by the bawdy theater goings-on of Weimar Republic Berlin, the group straddles a diverse landscape of sounds that include everything from punk, to synth, to polka... all in a vaudevillian manner. And they don't skimp on the get-ups: Stephanie sports a jet-black bob and Adam wears cat ears. Dresden Dolls enthusiasts rejoice.The duo has a few upcoming dates in Austin, assuming they can get Sultan to stop hiding behind the couch.
