The United States of Theresa

theresaz@ZackTeibloom Theresa Andersson is a one-woman force on stage, but don’t forget about her alter egos, The Kitchenettes. Much like the protagonist of Diablo Cody’s wonderful Showtime show, “The United States of Tara,” Theresa has developed multiple personalities.

The difference is that on the show, Tara has multiple personalities to hide from a trauma. Theresa Andersson just needs back-up singers.

As she explains in this clip, There’s Ema, a very large bosomed lady who sings the bass part. There’s “Eva and Liza, who are so good looking they don’t think that they have to rehearse. They stand by the door post the whole time, leaning back, chewing gum and texting each other.”

Theresa sings their parts with sass, pretending to text and obnoxiously chew gum as she records the vocal track on a pedal with her bare foot. “The fourth girl, Shirlada, is in charge and makes sure the others have their things together.” Theresa strums her guitar softly and lays Shirlada’s part down as she plays Eva and Liza’s parts, looping them all together to complete the Kitchenettes.

The reason for Theresa’s multiple personalities is that she recoreded her album in her kitchen by herself and “went a little crazy after a while.” Personally, I’ll take as much Theresa as I can get, even if she has to pretend to be someone else some of the time. The Swedish-born, New Orleans cultivated singer is an incredibly heartwarming performer.

She flutters from guitar to violin to dulcimer with ease, captivating the crowd with her soft voice and plucky style. Imagine Andrew Bird’s instrument choice with Keller Williams’ looping style and an angelic voice. Or four.
