U.S. Girls – Bless This Mess [Streaming]

Today the ever evolving artist U.S. Girls dropped the highly anticipated eighth album called Bless This Mess via 4AD and Royal Mountain Records.
Bless This Mess is filled with funky disco poppy music.
Called it a journey on the start of being a mother through the ups and downs.

About the album by Meg:
As Remy’s body changed throughout the pregnancy, so did her voice; her diaphragm lost breathing room, adjusting to the growing lives inside.
Many takes on Bless This Mess were tracked with the babies in utero, or in her arms. (She even samples her breast pump on the album’s poetic closing cut, “Pump”).

The resulting performances are suffused by the physicality of this journey: more blood, more feelings, the interwoven wonders, and wounds of procreation.

The ten songs on Bless This Mess were pieced together stem by stem with a vast cast of collaborators (Alex Frankel of Holy Ghost!, Marker Starling, Ryland Blackinton of Cobra Starship, Basia Bulat, Roger Manning Jr. of Jellyfish and Beck,) and audio engineers (Neal H Pogue, Ken Sluiter, Steve Chahley, Maximilian Turnbull).

Long-time collaborator, husband, and co-parent Turnbull played a key role facilitating these fluid muses.
The production throughout is exquisite, warm, and wood-panelled, framing the voice, keys, bass, and rhythms in heightened textural harmony.
