The Queens-based producer and Bandcamp favorite’s new LP is due this summer.
We first heard about Body Work, Lindsey French’s upcoming album as Negative Gemini, last fall with a promise of a 2016 release and a promising song. Now Body Work has a release date and a new single to remind us it was worth the wait.
‘Don’t Worry Bout The Fuck I’m Doing’ captures the promising sounds that made French a favorite in our Bandcamp column (her Real Virtual Unison EP was one of our favorite Bandcamp releases of the year), but it also addresses the bullshit of trying to walk down a New York street without being harassed.
“I don’t care about your shit face, the street goes down two ways,” she cooly sings over bouncing drum programming. When French lets loose emotionally, as on ‘You Never Knew’ or last year’s stunning ‘Forget Your Future’, it’s crushing. The shitheads here though only warrant the calm instruction of the title and with it French shows off another facet to her increasingly exciting work.
Listen to ‘Don’t Worry Bout The Fuck I’m Doing’ below and look for Body Work on August 12 via 100% Electronica.
