Boomkat Product Review:
Sometimes I ask myself 'where did all the riot grrrls go?' before diving head first into my collection of Bratmobile, Bikini Kill and Heavens to Betsy records. It's true though, what started as a defining moment in rock history ended up filtering half-heartedly into the horror of the Spice Girls and then petering out almost entirely. The boys won, sadly, and their geeky electronic music took over the underground leaving little room for ladies to get even a look in without a similarly inclined boyfriend in tow. Then came the noise scene, typically misanthropic it very surprisingly saw plenty of ladies muscling in on the action, and more than that - they did it BETTER. We have Jessica Rylan holding sh*t up for the home-made power electronix (or flower electronics?) crew, Maya Miller literally running things in NY with both Religious Knives and the Heavy Tapes imprint, Metalux showing the Load records fellers that there's more to life than a co*k and a microphone and now we've got Leslie Keffer who isn't afraid to capture a little of that riot grrrl spirit, or maybe a lot of it. You know you're in for a treat just by reading the title (and seeing the hella good cover art) - it's the sort of title you'd expect to have seen on a Kill Rock Stars record back in 1991, and then you read the record's concept and everything falls into place. A protest record of sorts 'Feels like Frenching' takes its entire source sound from female fronted pop and punk music (taken from the radio of course) and filters it to almost nothing - all you can hear is vaguely shifting lo-fidelity white noise coursing through your veins as you become absorbed by the thick fuzz. It may as well be the screams of a charged Kathleen Hanna that you're hearing, there's the same kind of attitude, it's just with Keffer she's beating the noise-boys at their own experimental game and winning. Deconstructing a genre has never been more fun, and with a wry smile Keffer had me at hello - all hail the new wave of riot grrrl.
