My lead review for the Quietus on Jenny Hval’s fantastic and terrifying new record Blood Bitch.

Reviewing the Ragnar Kjartansson exhibition at the Barbican for the Quietus.
And a review of Angel Olsen’s MY WOMAN for Crack.
I had the opportunity to interview Thomas Cohen for the Quietus recently. After some great feedback I’m gonna go ahead and say I’m really proud of it, because everyone seems to have got the impression of him that I was aiming for: mainly that he was extremely generous.
An interview with Ulrika Spacek for tQ.
THREE IN A ROW
Since my last post, I’ve been writing bits and bobs for The Quietus. First up, I interviewed one of my all time favourite bands, Lightning Bolt, about their album Fantasy Empire and the pains of being known.
I also reviewed the National Gallery’s Soundscapes exhibition.
And I also contributed to this Visions review – it’s still London’s best festival. Like if Field Day were inside and not populated by horrible, horrible humans.
THE NEW LIFE
Birthday Sex treated us to a new tune on Friday. Imagine if the song ‘From Paris to Berlin’ was actually amazing. I feel that Harriet and Tom will not be pleased with this ‘comparison’, but I reckon there’s something in it. But I’d like to emphasise again that this is a good song and really in no way akin to Infernal‘s 2006 smash. In summary, no one should listen to me. But do listen to Birthday Sex.
