p4k no 42: Jenny Hval – Apocalypse, girl

 

Had I ever heard of them before: nope

Reductive First Impression:  This album is awesome. Ambient and weird. The first track sounds like something from Chris Morris’s Jam. She’s got a beautiful voice, but really, you can’t hum the melodies. This album feels deeply personal, almost as if you’re wandering through her subconscious (a bad dream perhaps?). The other touchstones I had were all females who made odd music, and I don’t want to be reductive.

(Oh ok, weird Bjork, Liz Fraser, The Knife)

Will I listen to it again:  yes, it’s total Perrycore. I mean, the covers awesome.
