"Conceptual Romance" music video

Norwegian artist and writer Jenny Hval has developed her distinct take on intimate sound since the release of her debut album in 2006. For her last two solo albums, 2013?s Innocence Is Kinky and 2015?s Apocalypse, girl, Hval?s debut for Sacred Bones, she has received thoughtful and widespread international acclaim for her fascinating voice, singular delivery and markedly non-traditional arrangements which incorporate elements of poetry, prose writing, performance art, and film. The New York Times defines her writing as ?taking a scalpel to the subjects of gender politics and sexuality.? Hval has eloquently brought to light issues of both male and female gaze, which for years had been swept under the rug and/or denied all together.

Hval?s conceptual takes on collective and individual gender identities and sociopolitical constructs landed Apocalypse, girl on dozens of year end lists and compelled writers everywhere to grapple with the age-old yet always unspoken question: What is Soft Dick Rock? After touring for a year and earning her second Nordic Prize nomination, as any perfectionist would, Hval immediately went back into the studio to continue her work with acumen noise producer Lasse Marhaug, with whom she co-produces here on Blood Bitch. Her new effort is in many respects a complete 180 from her last in subject matter, execution and production. It is her most focused, but the lens is filtered through a gaze which the viewer least expects.

TV Girl w/ Wished Bone at Lodge Room Highland Park 05/31 - 8PM $12 ALL AGES TV Girl "On the surface, TV Girl is a sunny, throwback splash of ?60s French pop and southern California soul. Yet, under that shiny veneer lays a dark heart, beating with sharp wit and cynical alienation, and the music is all the more alluring for it." Wished Bone "Athens, Ohio?s Wished Bone is like Joanna Newsom with ...

One listen to Lost Friends, Middle Kids? forthcoming debut on Domino, and it?s clear that the rising Australian trio is aligned with each member?s own vision. Its 12 songs veer from brittle blasts of indie rock to elegiac piano ballads to pop anthems destined to ignite stadium singalongs. Already armed with a sleeper hit (?Edge of Town?), and with Lost Friends expected in the spring, the ban...
