Spiracle

Oh, wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. I think you will either watch this and think it’s terrible or you’ll think she’s absolutely incredible. The screaming is unnerving but also completely hypnotic…

The song is Spiracle from Soap&Skin’s debut album Lovetune For Vacuum, which is one of my favourite records of the year. It’s absolutely beautiful, consistently brilliant. What a talent. She’s playing in the Purcell Room at Southbank Centre in October, get your tickets. I missed her in April, I went to Alessi instead that night. Dirty Projectors played that night too. It was a clashy headache. Listen to her songs on Myspace.

    ooh ta, didn’t know tickets were available for that yet, will buy some later today. Never been to the purcell centre before.
    Her Bush Hall gig was stunning. Must see her again, especially now that I know/love her album.

    She’s brilliant, although clearly genuinely unhinged.
