|Description :||Chicago's Lovely Little Girls focus on the details; that bit of flab hanging over a waistband, those ill-fitting shoes that carve deeper with each step and that slight underbite - teetering between the lovely and the repugnant. |
Lovely Little Girls are an avant-rock band directed by artist Gregory Jacobsen and bassist Alex Perkolup. Using Jacobsen's grotesque paintings as a starting point, Lovely Little Girls construct theatrical No-Wave suites that morph from of-kilter dance anthems to punishing and ridiculous progressive rock. Simple musical motifs quickly deform into charges of odd harmony and tangled polyrhythms, punctuated by syllable-stuffed cut-and-paste prose; and grounded in a love for catchy melodies – a gravy-encrusted GLEE for the regressive metal and free jazz set.
With 'Cleaning the Filth From a Delicate Frame' the distressingly low-cut of Lovely Little Girls' jib has reached new heights. The band's latest recording and first for Skin Graft Records is a linear suite of songs that spin an abstract tale of birth, incompetent sex, over-ripe food and undignified death. Using multiple singers and different narrative voices, this is Lovely Little Girls' most cohesive work yet – a seven stage Théâtre de l'Absurde concept record.
The visual does aural.
