Jenny Hval – Year Of Love

Year Of Love is the second single to be released from Jenny Hval’s forthcoming album Classic Objects – her first studio album for 4AD. The song explores a “very troubling” experience she had of witnessing a marriage proposal at one of her performances. Plenty of artists, I’m sure, would have experienced this as a purely […]

Orlando Weeks – No End To Love

I’m not quite sure how it took three producers to make this, and what they […]
