Margaret Cho is sorry she shot you in the face (but not that sorry)

Notoriously potty-mouthed comedian Margaret Cho's 14-track LP Cho Dependent doesn't hit stores for another three weeks (Aug 24) but you don't have to wait until then to get a little taste of what she's got cooking. And it's actually really good. Cho's folksy "murder ballad," in which she apologizes for arson, bludgeoning by brick and a whole rap sheet of comparably bad behavior, is less comedy than damn decent music. Andrew Bird lends his famous whistle to "I'm Sorry" (he also co-wrote the track.) Turns out that not everything that comes out of Cho's mouth is filthy...we'd even call it, well, pretty. The rest of the album promises to be just as good, with collaborators including Fiona Apple, A.C. Newman [of the New Pornographers], Tegan and Sara, and more. Incidentally, the Cho will stop by the Wilbur late this October; perhaps she'll perform tracks off Cho Dependent live.
