Boomkat Product Review:
One of the most talked about female artists in the world (alongside Blevin of course) of independent electronica sings full fledged pop songs as personal as could be written straight from the heart onto her laptop. Those of you who have followed the skyrocketing career of media darlings Blectum From Blechdom know that once upon a time, there were two ladies who took boy's names and tried to conceal their womanly identities. What a difference a year makes! How refreshing it is to find Kevin Blechdom (real name Kristin Erickson!) fresh off a successful solo european tour baring her soul (and much else) by adding her voice to the mix of polytonal electronic torch songs and loveballads! Is "Interspecies Love" or "Talkin' Tech" more satisfying foreplay to the sassy, saltysweet ballads "Mr. Miguel" and "Private Dancer"? Kevin Blechdom reconfigures your senses with a potent blend of sounds and styles, attitude and angst, passion and possession, closely connected to the sounds of Peaches, Le Tigre, Chicks On Speed, Le Trim, Dat Politics, Fischerspooner and of course B F B. By the time she wraps her husky voice around tina turner's "Private Dancer," she's slapped you in the face and pinched your ass at the same time with songs that make machines speak in the most human language of love. Recommended.
