Hudson's Ryder Cooley Contributes to Compilation

Multimedia performance artist and musician Ryder Cooley is certainly one of the Hudson Valley’s more memorable artists. On most Tuesday nights, she can be found swinging from a trapeze while hosting the open-mic session at Club Helsinki in Hudson with Hazel, the stuffed bighorn sheep’s head she wears strapped to her back (I’ve always been confused by the nomenclature, as the disembodied animal is actually a ram, the male of the species; presumably Hazel is a transgender bighorn).

Anyway, Cooley has mainly called Hudson home for the past few years, but she's also lived and worked in San Francisco and Great Barrington, Massachusetts. In addition to accompanying herself on accordion, ukulele, and singing saw, she performs in the band the Dustbowl Faeries. Cooley recently contributed “Ghosts of Love,” a track of her spectral, acoustic freak folk to Atrocity Exhibition: Year One (Independent), a compilation of acts who’ve appeared at Brooklyn’s ongoing, goth-centric Atrocity Exhibition.

Now take a peak at Cooley (on accordion) jamming at Club Helsinki with locals Ngounda Badilla and Lady Moon:
