Marnie - Songs Hurt Me

$27.00

Discos Transgénero present the reissue of musician and performance artist Marnie Weber’s 1989 LP Songs Hurt Me. Weber’s debut solo effort, the songs draw from her performance art mythology, possessed by recurring characters - a deer, an old woman, a courtesan, and a butterfly - from her oeuvre at the time. Oscillating between sweet and sombre plainsong (“Songs Hurt Me” and “The Courtesan”), concrete experiments (“Falling Rock,” “Everyone Loves Olga”), and audacious art rock (“You Are Welcome on My Island,” “The Passionate One”), The Los Angeles artist and member of Party Boys joined with Phillip Drucker (AKA Jackson Del Ray from Savage Republic / 17 Pygmies) to develop this almost Caroline K-esque creation.
