Chandra - Transportation EPs
Cathartic reissue of Transportation Eps, a no wave gem from 12-year-old (!) Chandra Oppenheim. Simultaneously infectious and gritty, this collection gives a glimpse into New York's post-punk underbelly in the 1980s, through the sideways view of an underage youth.
Many of the songs are dance-rallying cries like, “Get it Out of Your System,” where jangly melodica, organ, and dissonant guitar meet Chandra's uncalculated vocals. Her blunt delivery and witty lyrics are reminiscent of another young prodigy, Su Tissue of the West Coast's Suburban Lawns, or the pure charisma of a preteen Lizzy Mercier Descloux.
This from the archive release is brought to us via Chandra's own label, Rain Boots Records.
