Jenny Hval – Innocence Is Kinky
“That night, I watched people fucking on my computer”
Jenny Hval is a Norwegian singer. I don’t know much about her. I got the heads up on her from a post on facebook by Lasse Marhaug, who praised her. As I have a habit of delving into artists mentioned by artists I like (it all began when Limahl mentioned Prince in an interview…. (sic)), I gave Jenny Hval a listen, and was rather intrigued. Her sound is a strange dreamy/nightmarish poppy noisy experimental avantgarde one.
Her voice is soft at times and crooked and evil at times. I suggest you take a listen. Innocence Is Kinky is her second album, and well worth your time. Beware – it’s a grower!
