Description

In a music and publishing industry first, the lead singer of Throwing Muses, 50 Foot Wave and solo artist Kristin Hersh released her new studio album, Crooked, as a book—the first time any major recording artist has taken such a step. And now, this book is available on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

The groundbreaking publication and app contain gorgeous artwork, complete lyrics, and an exclusive essay by Kristin for each song. Also included is a digital code which unlocks a treasure trove of online content including Lossless and mp3 versions of the full Crooked album and two bonus EPs, track-by-track audio commentary by Kristin, the opening pages of her memoir, "Rat Girl, " exclusive video content, and a forum enabling fans to interact with Kristin, ask questions, and participate in live web chats.

The app itself contains each song from the Crooked album in Apple Lossless format, the beautiful imagery from the printed book, and Kristin's audio commentary for each track. Additionally, it includes audio of Kristin reading each essay. Any of these recordings may be played as you browse the book's pages.

On the iPhone and iPod Touch, there are some pages where the text is too small to easily readif you rotate the device to its "landscape" orientation, you will be presented with an alternate view that makes the text larger and easier to read. Or if you prefer, you can use the pinch gesture to zoom in on those pages.

Crooked on iTouch 4

:
The Crooked book as an app...
A collection of essay’s interviews songs and artwork .

I found it to be a kaleidoscope of music, perspectives and visuals.

It opened up the music "Album / Liner" note experience in such a way
that it helped expand my perspective on my own impressions.

Pictures of perfect, vivid, idyllic flowers frozen in still life, Chosen .
Like moments we find worthy to remember.

I highly recommend it.

5/5 stars

The ultimate music release and book release all in one!

:
iPods were meant for music, lots and lots of lovely music. The iPad is meant to take everything to another level. Crooked, a release from Kristin Hersh is the perfect creation for the iPad, it takes the musical release to another level.

This experience is many fold. Firstly, there is the unmistakable beauty of the format. The pictures explode off the screen, the texture of each flower is something you can touch and feel. Lisa Fletcher, the photographer, captured images which leave you wanting more. You could stop there and not be disappointed but that is only the first layer.

Then there is music. Ten beautifully written and performed songs. A cohesive body of music that showcases a fantastic talent. Centered around her guitar, Hersh's unmistakable voice draws you in to listen to her stories and her creations. They will leave you wanting for more. But even that still only scratches the surface. As you move through Crooked, you are treated to a unique essay tied to each song, but since this creation is many layers deep, you can choose to read them or listen to them read by the artist herself. Each chapter unfolds into another song, another flower, lyrics and an essay, but even that is not the last layer. Included with each song, you have the chance to listen to a commentary on each song through a recorded conversation between Kristin and her husband Billy. The unique insight into the song's creation and evolution are precious and worth the listen.

The entire package is what every app should strive for: striking beauty and a use of everything this medium has to offer.

5/5 stars

Amazing-- as all KH products are

:
This app is exceptional... this CD changed everything by turning itself into a book that provided insight behind each song. This application changed everything by making a musical CD into an interactive visual, audio and mental Kristin Hersh experience. Using this with the iPhone4 retina display was beautiful and fun and I was interacting with Kristin's music, not just listening to it. I wish she would create something like this for all of her CDs. Thanks, EthicalPaul for such a fun piece of KH in the form of this application.
