<—- Week 16: Tim Hecker – “veil scans”
Week 18 – Micachu feat. Kevin – “Clothes Wear Me” —->
Hey everyone. RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the 2016 Adult Swim Singles Program.
Experimental pop/fol artist Jenny Hval is set to drop her new album Blood Bitch at the end of this month on September 30th, and she’s shared a new single from that upcoming release via Adult Swim, titled “Period Piece”. The song keeps things as weird as has come to be expected from Jenny, with its minimal drum beat, echoing string rhythm, and complexly layered/phrased vocals. A church-like choir serves as a nice backdrop to Jenny Hval’s echoing off-kilter singing, and there are some other neat musical touches, most prominently a brief synth passage in the middle that evokes the imagery of medieval nights. An admirably ambitious piece as always from this artist, and it has me looking forward to her newest album later this month. You can stream “Period Piece” down below, and be sure to download it and the other released singles right here.
