Overview
Release Date:06/10/2014;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing. Produced in the twilight of the '80s in London and originally released on white-label LP with a homemade rubber stamp impression, Witch is the mysterious and powerful debut from poet, artist and musician Leslie Winer. It's an infectious patchwork of Dub beats, tasteful samples and Winer's sultry blend of spoken word with cool, folksy lullabies that later became popularized by acts such as Massive Attack and Tricky. Even though Witch predates those artists' breakthroughs by a year or more, Winer quickly rejected NME's christening her as the 'Grandmother of Trip-Hop.' No stranger to the concept of fame and it's pitfalls, Winer moved to New York in the late '70s to attend university and befriended William S. Burroughs and Jean-Michel Basquiat, among other street-level luminaries. Winer's spoken delivery evokes the frank realism of beat poetry her lyrics grapple with socially constructed notions of beauty, womanhood and domestic roles. These stark challenges to power structures are articulate and staggeringly direct, pushing the boundaries of pop music's form.;Track List:1. He Was;2. Flove;3. N1Ear;4. The Boy Who Used 2 Whistle;5.
