I also just want to say that I agree that the person is being fisted. Right in there. Boom

For the cover art of Something in the Room She Moves, Holter chose a painting by her childhood friend Christina Quarles, titled Wrestling. It shows two astral humanoid figures entangled with one another, similar to the dance constructions of Simone Forti—another mutual friend of Holter and Wada. “Christina’s work often has these figures in it that are so complex and layered and amazing. It’s unclear what they’re doing. Like, is it sexual? Is it kind of violent…. or maybe both? It really felt right to me. There’s so many layers to her work. I think that’s what I love about it. It’s…complicated.”

fwiw

don't think anyone was ever going to deny there were erotic overtones, but looking at an image that ambiguous and coming away with nothing to say but Butt Sex Hand should come with an immediate fast-track back to middle school

Googling that artist and trying to place every painting on a violence-sex spectrum is kind of fascinating

This piece I called ‘going to extreme lengths to try and locate a tune’



Not much substance for me, mostly pretty but a couple of tracks I have to forward

grossly overused alternative for "very" fr

and yh my soundoff used the dumb butt joke as an excuse to make a dumb grammar joke and i deleted it because it didn't deserve to hang around for posterity

much like a certain someone's comments in any of my threads

i like the album art! she (the artist) exhibited at the Venice biennale and it was a highlight, the ambiguity even more striking when you're adopting a pose and gazing at it

I hate how un-cute her music is. This chick, Julia, always with the buzzkill.

I definitely overestimated some of the general populous here, as I wasn't considering any significant proportion of the comments to be so juvenile, not based on such vague notions of eroticism (c'mon it's ambiguous / abstract enough for it to also NOT be 'that', at least as your first instinctive thought, smh)



So anyway, what about the music? Aviary's loose improvisational nature has grown on me and Loud City Song is rather pleasant, yet it hasn't entirely hit home thus far. This one intrigues me
