Jenny Hval – Blood Bitch

Jenny Hval – Blood Bitch

Released September 30th, 2016


Jenny Hval makes difficult experimental avant-garde pop music. Blood Bitch is the fourth album under her own name by the ever-inventive and fascinating Norwegian artist. It’s arguably her best to date, or at least the most accessible. There are drones and white noise scattered across Blood Bitch and some spoken word conversations mostly circling around the female body and menstruation, and the idea of art itself. Quite often, listeners (myself included) don’t know how to react to Hval, but her works encourage multiple listens to try and sort it out. And, that in it’s own right is an accomplishment.

3.5 out of 5 stars
