The French band, La Femme are like a rip in a beautiful woman’s stocking. There are signs of a struggle, but there is no concern for her well-being because you understand that it was a consensual act between two lovers. They are musical mutts that are howling in a cage at the pedigree in the […]

“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop Album Review
