Ivy and the Wicker Suitcase is a surreal mythic musical audiodrama that comes in a fully illustrated book, featuring Daniel Johnston, Bill Callahan, Will Sheff, James Hand, K. McCarty, and starring Grace London as Ivy Wire. It’s a story about a 10 year old girl in Austin in 1938 who falls into the Underworld.
Brian Beattie wrote the story and music, and his wife, artist Valerie Fowler illustrated the book. They’re calling this dreamy low-tech multimedia masterpiece an “Illustrated Earmovie Musical”. It’s a children’s book for grown ups, an epic myth for kids, and a depression era musical for the new depression.
