upfront copies of the most played and loved record in rough trade at the moment. the debut album by women was recorded over 4 months on ghetto blasters and old tape machines in chad vangaalen's basement, an outdoor culvert and a crawl space. sometimes light and spacious, at other times eerie and dense with an ominous weight, this self titled album touches upon velvet underground, swell maps or this heat while not really having any obvious precursors - a lo-fi masterpiece cloaked in layers of vibrato and guitar wash. noisy and claustrophobic songs smash through junkyard trash brawls while others lift and soar across the landscape of 50's-informed pop; a contradiction and an enigma, the debut album by women will find its way onto summertime pool break-in boombox mixes and the turntables of record store devotees.
