Nobody's Hippie

Kimya Dawson has a livejournal, as well as an online diary. The antifolk artist and ex-Moldy Peaches member is a personal favorite, her solo work is genuine, spontaneous, heartfelt and sometimes silly, sometimes sad.

Not only a talented musician, she is a visual artist as well, with a show currently at the Spitz in London, "These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things," with other noted musician/artists Daniel Johnston, Jad Fair, Devendra Banhart, and Jeffrey Lewis.

Are you sure that the Moldy Peaches broke up? I was very surprised to see you refer to Kimya as being an "ex-Moldy Peaches member". That was news to me. But I've been looking around online to make sure, and I haven't seen any real news stories or declarations from the band saying that they broke up. Just some news story about them not doing anything together for an indefinite period of time so they could work on their solo careers. But not really breaking up. They just don't know when they'll reunite to do more Moldy Peaches stuff.

That story is here. It's the second article on the page.
