SOTW: Swans


artist: Laura Carbone
album: Sirens

As former frontwoman of German electro-pop punk band Deine Jugend, Carbone kills it in her first solo album, where she forgets every electronic association, adds an extra layer of black eyeliner, and reaches deep into her 90s memories for this 145 bpm head-nodder. She channels 90s, but not in a Courtney Love kind of way and rather Tanya Donnelly (of Throwing Muses, The Breeders, and Belly). What you get is a vintage alt-rocker brought into the modern decade, crooning about moon phases and black swans.
