JOANNA SWAN "Memphis Hotel"
(Tingo Tongo Tapes)

A warped Prokofiev sonata quickly morphs into damaged minimal techno and Joanna Swan has you tied to a blood-stained bed in the "Memphis Hotel" for both sides of this sick cassette. Pairs well with greasy hair, tepid coffee, wincing at the sun, a tobacco-encrusted station wagon or a basement so sweaty the painted walls are wet.
