Lydia Lynch & Cypress Grove / Spiritual Front – Twin Horses
Lydia Lunch is an American singer, poet, writer, actress and self-empowerment speaker. Her career was spawned by the New York City no wave scene, with her work typically featuring provocative and confrontational noise music. She has maintained an anti-commercial ethic, operating independently of major labels and distributors. The Boston Phoenix named Lunch one of the ten most influential performers of the 1990s, and her collaboration with Sonic Youth called “Death Valley ’69” was named one of “The 50 Most Evil Songs Ever” by Kerrang! Cypress Grove is an English musician, singer, songwriter, composer and producer. Grove has recorded with a number of musicians including Nick Cave, Debbie Harry, Mark Lanegan, Iggy Pop, Isobel Campbell, Thurston Moore, Warren Ellis, to name a few. Spiritual Front is a five-part neofolk act from Rome. Its members describe their music as “nihilist suicide pop”, although elements of neoclassical and rock music, melancholic folk, as well as tango are prevalent, along with a recurring experimental feel. From dark, wailing experimental folk in the beginning, the sound began to transform and grow, to where it is now compared to the work of Nick Cave, Swans, and Scott Walker. The group’s work has been described as crossing a wide variety of genres and musical styles or traditions, and the band itself is considered highly unique among the modern neofolk and post-industrial scenes in Europe. Twin Horses is a split LP, with four songs from Lydia Lynch & Cypress Grove, one song from Lydia Lynch, and five songs from Spiritual Front.
