Helen Burns (EP)

by Flea
Helen Burns by Flea
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Flea
Released to raise funds for L.A.'s Silverlake Conservatory of Music, Helen Burns is a departure from Flea's work with the Chilis. The six-track EP was recorded at his home in 2007 and features a short list of collaborators, among them drummer Chad Smith and punk queen Patti Smith. Sonically, Flea spins a collection of electro-acoustic soundscapes, each one an engaging and quirky weave of jazz-fusion, modern rock and electronic music. A good deal of this stuff feels inspired by Stevie Wonder's Journey Through "The Secret Life of Plants", the trippy soundtrack record from the late '70s.
