Last year chanteuse Inara George released An Invitation, her lush collaboration with legendary arranger, lyricist, composer and singer Van Dyke Parks. After the largely positive–though slightly muted–reaction to that collection, Inara went back to the drawing board and has just issued a digital solo collection of related sketches and reinventions.

Inara (who's also known as the fairer half of neo-twee duo The Bird and The Bee) will be showcasing Accidental Experimental, her kinda-DIY companion piece to An Invitation, next Tuesday at the Bootleg Theatre.

If you hurry, you can pick up a free MP3 of Inara's spare reworking of An Invitation's intriguing “Bomb” at KCRW, where it will be the Top Tune until tomorrow.

Inara George performs (with Eleni Mandell, Daniel Martin Moore and Ferraby Lionheart) next Tuesday, November 10th, at the Bootleg Theatre, 2220 Beverly Blvd at Alvarado.
