    The album wrestles with many of the same ideas [as 2013's Innocence Is Kinky], set against an erotic sonic futurescape of spoken word, warped choirs, sci-fi electronics and her typically pillow-soft vocals....

    Apocalypse, girl is an understated mesh of free jazz and artful improvisation, guiding us out of the nightmare capitalism has dreamed for us and into sexual liberation and individual rebirth.

    Nowdays people call MUSIC anything that produces noises. I just can't call this music when I can't find any melody or harmony on it. WorseNowdays people call MUSIC anything that produces noises.
