Tenderness - Cruel As The Grave

Full review to follow. Playing in a venue with a far larger sound system than I've ever previously seen her at, there was more of everything to Chrissy Reichert's songs — more melody, more distortion, more bounce. Well-paired with a static-y abstract series of projections, watching this set felt like being in on a secret. I try not to wear the figurative A&R hat, but in a world where, say, Grimes and Tune-Yards are stars of some sort, there's no reason that Tenderness shouldn't be getting mentioned in the same breath.
