Pain Is Beauty



We have run out of stock for this item.

Wolfe has crafted an impeccable release here, building upon her existing methods and evolving as a songwriter. Things feel more confident there's more energy and oomph (perhaps as a result of the shift in instrumental focus). It's not exactly swaggering, but you can hear her experiment more; she's not afraid to stray from the straight n'narrow. Within those expanded boundaries, we get a breadth of fresh noises. It's still overtly maudlin, and Wolfe is definitely not afraid to jam a knife between your ribs and wiggle it a little, but it possesses a certain charm that will keep you coming back for more. 8/10 Line of best Fit
