The music of Jenny Hval feels gloriously new and strange, post-modern in subject matter and timeless in sound, with a performance artist’s passion and rhetoric driving her work. “You say I’m free now, that battle is over/And feminism is over and socialism’s over,” she croons over plush organ chords on recent single “That Battle’s Over,” before finishing the thought with “I can consume what I want now.” It’s the unapologetic baldness of her political sentiments that make all her other choices—the stripped-down chamber-folk sound, the lilting curvature of her voice—so fantastically unintuitive. Instead of fronting a powder keg punk band or alienating noise group, Hval gently, delicately opines on the decay of modern life and womanhood, a foreign object in her own world. KYLE FLECK
