Karen Cooper Complex - Shinjuku Birdwalk


Extremely pleased to find this little treasure in our inbox. Experimental improv post-punk from 1981 out of Richmond, VA. Loose production, sporadic but playful female vocals, some hefty grooves, and plenty of "holy shit" moments. It's a spacious but highly rewarding listen, and I wouldn't be surprised if some label makes an effort to press this on vinyl in the near future. "We Saw Waves" is pretty incredible.
