Jenny Hval Rocks

Last night Jenny Hval and her two bandmates lit up NYC's Mercury Lounge. Some performers during some performances have the ability to capture the room, making everything around you recede into the distance while the music becomes your every breath. Jenny Hval offered up an intimate and moving show filled with such moments featuring some of her older music, some from her recent and highly recommended Innocence is Kinky release on Rune Grammofon, and even a new song. Live, her fragile and forceful voice is even more infectious than on record (which is pretty impressive) and watching her perform is a special and moving treat. I highly recommend catching her if you can.

Here are the dates for the remainder of her tour:

Wed Oct 2 – Glasslands Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (US)
Tue Oct 15 – Unsound, Krakow (PL)
Fri Oct 25 – Insomnia Festival, Tromsø (NO)
Fri Nov 01 – Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA (US)
Tue Nov 05 – DC9, Washington DC (US)
Wed Nov 06 – Boot & Saddle, Philadelphia, PA (US)
Thu Nov 07 – Iron Horse Music Hall, Northampton, MA (US) – w/ Kirin J Callinan
