Dancer Vs. Politician

Dancer Vs. Politician is the musical project of German native Sanni Baumgaertner. She moved to Athens, Georgia in the late 90s, where she started performing in different bands around the Southeast. She plays accordion, guitar, and musical saw. Her lyrics are in German and English.

After traveling back and forth between Athens and Berlin for the last three years and playing shows in the US and Germany with bands in both places, Dancer Vs. Politician is getting ready to tour the US this fall. She is bringing a three-piece backing band, featuring keyboards, samples, glockenspiel, viola, drums, and bass.

Produced by Matt Yelton (The Pixies, Frank Black), Andy Baker (The Glands, Azure Ray, Shannon Wright), and Sanni herself, the album A City Half-Lost features a number of Athens and Berlin musicians. The players include members of Phosphorescent, The Olivia Tremor Control, The Glands, and Five-Eight. It was recorded over a period of two years in Athens, Georgia, and Berlin, Germany. Stomp And Stammer calls it “…a wondrous masterpiece, like a Nico album performed by ghosts and angels. Find it, buy it.” (April 2007).

Of of the tracks on the album, the Nikki Sudden song "Ratcliffe Highway" is featured on the Nikki Sudden tribute album "Suddenly Yours" on Sunthunder Records (Spain). Sanni Baumgärtner also appears on Nikki Sudden's last album The Truth Doesn't Matter and has recorded with Vic Chesnutt, Bill Doss (Apples in Stereo, The Olivia Tremor Control), and Jeffrey Butzer (Lona Records).
