More explorations, mantras, goings-in now unleashing from our resident laughing-monk-in-training Kate "Fuck you That's Me" "Overflowing with overwhelming love for everyone around me" Farstad, again involving a whole Minnesotan crew, this time two years of accumulated .wav's tomed up into 41 minutes of wall splatting collages of recorded screaming, smacking, scraping.
As you may can tell we never how to call IP and that's why we like it so much! We know it sprawls out, searching, gets loud and painful, wincing, imprecise precision with purpose. it goes WAY "harder" in a lot of ways we personally would be afraid to (see "More to Life"), foiling up the coming home moments (see "Call the Cow") all angrily, making for a big ol barbed nest around a precious center that doesn't want any untangling.
This shit is wild! is all we're tryin to say, and we dont think it cares too much if you dont like it!

Carrying the torch for The Residents, Laurie Anderson, and Bongwater, Itch Princess is the Intellectual-Avant-Pop-Sonic-Sculptor I'm thrilled is doing the damn thing in the Twin Cities.
A highlight for mine ears, are the sleek basslines throughout EAD. Special sauce indeed. Dojo Holliday
