April Fools: Shallow End of the Gene Pool

Emily Kaitz: Shallow End of the Gene Pool


It seems that no one could possibly mean to search for Emily Kaitz. Try it yourself, and you’ll see what I mean. Search Amazon’s music page, and, yes, you will find Kaitz’ albums. But there follows a list that assures you that you must have meant Emily Kate (who?). Look for Pingleglobber, Kaitz’ label, on Google, and you get asked if you really meant pingle globber.

But Trout Fishing in America looks for Kaitz on purpose when they need one more song for an album. And Short End of the Gene Pool was one of several Kaitz originals covered by Asylum Street Spankers. And those are two groups that don’t cover just anybody.

Emily Kaitz writes some seriously funny songs. Now, if she would just take herself seriously enough to do a better job of marketing herself....
