#66 Jenny Hval – Blood Flight


Stand-out track from Hval’s 2011 album, Viscera, ‘Blood Flight’ is a pulsing, menacing meditation on the body and its senses. Throughout, the vocal alternates between an anguished spoken word tone and freewheeling singing voice, building to a neurotic climax two-thirds of the way through. If this floats your boat, Hval has just released a second album under her own name, Innocence is Kinky, which continues the journey into the deepest reaches of the body and psyche.
