Years later, I put this tape on in my room and was transported to a feeling that might have been similar to what she was feeling back in that kitchen in 2008. Granted, we are a different gender, close to ten years apart in age and have completely different reference points for the same things, but I could immediately see why she was singing the praises of this tape. It's fierce, feminist, unapologetic, punk, drone-y and political. And like I said, my reference points are different, so I will spare you the Kat Bjelland comparisons and just let you soak this in for yourself.

Thanks to Kate for her rabid fandom.
Also, I just got back from a really fun tour with FUNERAL CONE a few days ago. Their tape has been on a constant loop in my brain as well as my tape deck. The tape is all sold out and I would just post it here, but it's being released as a 7" EP right this minute. Keep checking with Weirdo / 100% Breakfast Records to get a copy for yourself. It's excellent.
