PHEMALE: City Silk: LP

Jun 14, 2014

What if Duran Duran had art school beginnings like Devo? Imagine an underground label found those recordings and released them as Hardcore Duran Duran Vol. 1? Melancholy synthpop from “mixed media artist” Michael Donahue. Skinny-jeaned ninety pound teens will find quite a bit to wallow in with a purchase of City Silk. This is not a panning of Phemale, just an observation that it’s no Friday night party record, but definitely a “no girlfriend/boyfriend but that’s okay cause I have my art” record. Creepy minimalist bass/keyboards/samples/loops to express your inner Ian Curtis.
