THUNDER THIGHS is the first solo album from ex-Moldy Peach Kimya Dawson since the Grammy winning, platinum selling soundtrack from the movie JUNO. Album features guest performances from Aesop Rock, members of the Strokes, Mountain Goats, Forever Young Senior Citizen Rock and Roll Choir, Kimya’s 5 year old daughter Panda, and more. Album will be released on Kimya’s own label – Great Crap Factory - via Burnside Distribution October 18, 2011.
As Kimya’s seventh album, the assumed lo-fi sound has taken a delightful turn with the addition of pianos, backing choirs, string arrangements and several beats produced by rapper Aesop Rock. Although the personal touch of Kimya’s delicate strumming and the crackling of her soft voice still sit forefront, the backbone is a more mature solid arrangement that supports her powerful poetry.
Your Heart Breaks
Sparse homo pop love songs written by a person who drinks too much, and eats way too much sugar. Sounds like typewriters, xylophones, guitars, drums, violins, and sugar.
