LOVELY LITTLE GIRLS: Glistening Vivid Splash: CD

Like a welcome nightmare, Glistening Vivid Splash is a twisted symphony of pornographic gore. Comprised of nine members (three of whom are vocalists), Lovely Little Girls sets out to stun its listeners into submission with heavy doses of horns and lyrical flogging. Equal parts jazz, prog, and avant-garde, this horde of provocateurs revels in disturbing the peace. A horrible marvel of an album, Glistening Vivid Splash is kind of like Frankenstein’s monster: it’s proof of man’s capacity for brilliance, but scary as all hell. –Simone Carter (Skin Graft, [email protected], skingraftrecords.com)
