Jenny Hval, “Ashes to Ashes”

Jenny Hval
“Ashes to Ashes”
The Practice of Love (out now on Sacred Bones)

Though I haven’t written about the Norwegian multi-instrumentalist’s brilliant seventh album yet, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been listening to it. Like just about all of her releases, The Practice of Love is best digested as an album, but centerpiece “Ashes to Ashes” is a good place to start. Hval washes her insightful lyrics and evocative voice is warm baths of synths and a gentle backbeat, bubbling along nicely and slowly rising to an emotional boil. A genius at work.
