    I'm glad this was not the first I saw of her, I find it very hard to watch. I just don't 'get it' I guess.

    You have to remember it is just a performance.

    This is what she is really like.

    She presents herself very well in that interview, down to earth and self aware.

    I don't think I have ever come across an artist that has polarised my interest so dramatically before. I knew nothing of her until you started this thread, since then I have listened to her on different mediums everyday. I find her music hypnotically engrossing, it's among the most rewarding and addictive I have ever heard. And yet her imagery and performances leave me reaching for the off button. Realistically, I have to admit that I appreciate what she does visually as an artist, I just don't like it.

    When I first showed a video of her to my partner Helen she said she never wanted to hear her in the house. After buying Party she is totally addicted and there is hardly a week that goes past when she doesn't ask to hear it. Now designer has come along we start the journey again.
    Yes her live performance in early days was a bit unsettling but it is as she has said herself just a performance.

    Her music is addictive and transcends genres and captures not only you heart , soul and brain but has another dimension that I have never experienced by another artist. She is a genius and mesmerises you with her vocal and minimalistic ability with music.

    I am glad you like the music just keep away from the videos.

    If you have not got Party then you need to buy it on vinyl - Listen to" Swell does the skull". The recording is beyond audiophile and done on analogue tape I believe. Her voice is fabulous and haunting!

    I have to wait till November unfortunately but hopefully I will see her play a few new tracks.

    She wrote most of 'Designer' whilst touring last year I believe and played a number of the tracks whilst touring with 'Party.'

    Let me know how the Manchester Gig goes.

    We had 2 copies of vinyl delivered on day of issue. Very quiet pressing with no issues and very well recorded/mastered. Party still has the edge though.

    Hope you enjoy.
