Lydia Lunch and Marc Hurtado "My Lover The Killer"


(Munster, 2016) "Most of the men I've lived with have attempted suicide at least once," Lydia Lunch eerily intones over too-scary-for-Halloween haunted piano tinklings and walls of ghost sounds. That is the theme and bad dream of this concept spoken word album specifically inspired by/about an ex who exacted a murder-suicide shortly before/possibly motivated by a planned reconnection with the former Teenage Jesus herself. Intensely dread-ish, but mostly not regretful or mournful or even sad, this is a journey too dark for most Goth teens, but somehow so nihilistic that it's immune to tragedy. I will never play this record at a child's birthday party. Again.
