The seminal cello-driven trio Rasputina is celebrating the release of their seventh album, Sister Kinderhookwith a Summer tour.The tour starts July 8 in Somerville, MA and ends August 22 in Denver, CO. This album finds Melora expressing a thematic fantasy of Colonial Federalism. Subject-wise, she also touches on  feral children (Snow-Hen of Austerlitz), the Anti-rent Wars of 1844 (Calico Indians), and Early American portraiture (The 2 Miss Leavens), not to mention the theory that giants were indeed real, but killed each other off in a self-genocidal holocaust (A Holocaust of Giants).
