Women by Women

This is where it all started for the band known as Women (members of whom went on to become Viet Cong/Preoccupations and Cindy Lee). Though follow up Public Strain was their best statement, their self titled debut is well worth investigating for its wild avant rock which, when you aren't looking, breaks out into the wiry tunefulness of the likes of the 1980s New Zealand Dunedin/Flying Nun bands. It spawned a host of imitators but this is the real deal.

You try searching for a Women CD! Anyhoo this album has been out for a while in the US and it's finally surfaced over here now it's all been Pitchforked up. The first time this was played on the stereo I was blown away by it. It's essentially a great experimental rock album but that makes me feel like a bit of a twat so I won't say that. Bits of Panda Bear, Liars, Sonic Youth and This Heat chucked into a massive experimental rock pot and stirred up by Pat Flegel, the frontman of Women. This is an adventurous album with some seriously good song writing. 'Black Rice' is a top tune sounding like a proper good 60's psych pop pastiche. There are some amazing tracks on here but I think this is an album to listen to from start to finish. The first time I heard it I was blown away and repeated listens bring out the subtleties and nuances which are there in spades. It's definitely a singular piece of work which needs to be listened to from start to end. It's a fucking great album and deffo a band to keep an eye over the coming years!!
