Everyone in Jenny Mudarri’s house knew when she was recording what would eventually become So she is really excited to share her new EP, “Starlings” with you all on this wintery day. This 12-minute, 5 track album is chalk-full of harmonies, sarcasm, and a bunch of fuzzy goodness.

“I would close my door and go tell everyone in my house, ‘Don’t come in my room, I’m going to be recording,’” says Mudarri, who created the entire album in her childhood bedroom, on the phone. “I have this MIDI input thing that I plug my guitar into. I didn’t even have an amp or anything, I just recorded everything straight onto my computer. All the frequencies are really low; it was kind of a total mess. But it was really fun to do. My parents knew I was recording but they had no idea what it was going to sound like at all. When they did listen, my Dad would text me like ‘I don’t want you to be lonely. Are you lonely?” I told him, ‘Don’t overanalyze the lyrics,’ but it was a good outlet for me at the time.”

The sound has kind of evolved from the really lo-fi scratchy bedroom sound,” says Mudarri about Feral Jenny’s forthcoming new record. “We tried to record a couple songs for this EP the more traditional way, and we heard them and thought they sounded too polished and clean. So we are going back and recording it half and half; half as it should be done and half as I know how to do it. It’s a mixture between a polished record and sounding dirty.” It’s the finding of that dividing line that makes Feral Jenny’s continuing evolution a pleasure to hear, warts and all.
