Post Orgasmic Chill

Virgin

The only way I can describe this band is…well, the singer is like a female version of Devin Townsend. I’ve never heard a woman scream-sing in such a controlled way. The band is sort of Kings X+No Doubt+311+Dream Theater or something. The recording is plenty thick with sound effects and inventive timbres…It’s safe to assume they’re pretty far into debt to the studio by now. They’re a really good band, OK? I wonder what they look like. Fine musicians. This woman singer’s voice sort of goes into like a Björk thing sometimes. There are some seriously nice harmonic changes here, such as on “On My Hotel TV,” which is really weird when the lyrics suddenly start going backwards. Cool.
