Professor Kristen Baumlier on Public Radio

On September 2, Kristen Baumlier will appear on WCPN radio station's "Around Noon" program to discuss her new Petroleum Pop Princess album.

Professor Kristen Baumlier on Public Radio

Kristen Baumlier, Chair of the Integrated Media Environment and Head of the T.I.M.E. – Digital Arts department at CIA, will be on WCPN radio station's Around Noon program Thursday, September 2, at noon. Kristen talks about her musical artist alias, the Petroleum Pop Princess, and her new politically-fired album, Deplete Me. Released this July, Deplete Me, full of satire, wit, and pop around the oil crisis, is available for sale on iTunes.

In the songs “Oil Embargo,” “Conservation,” and “Transport Me,” Baumlier explores the landscape of the oil industry and the consequences of the recent oil spill disaster.

In Cleveland’s Scene Magazine, author Jeff Niesel asks if “Kristen Baumlier [is] Cleveland’s answer to M.I.A.” “Her recently released album, Deplete Me,” continues Niesel, “features nine dance-pop songs all about the energy crisis. In cuts like ‘Sea Plants and Animals Die and Sink Man (Or How Oil is Made’) and ‘Oil Embargo,’ Baumlier sings about the evils of oil production and complains about ‘thirsty SUVs.’” Read the full story.

Find out more about Baumlier’s music and listen to samples on the Petroleum Pop Princess website. The CD is for sale on iTunes.
