Artist: SEX WORKER
Title: The Labor of Love
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Still waters run deep but wild waters run deeper. Both when fronting San Fran free-punk body-music trio Mi Ami or performing angst-dance psycho-dramas under his solo alias, Sex Worker, Daniel Martin-McCormick always succeeds in generating total motion (and emotion) and breaking the fourth wall. His vision of tranced/anguished rhythm questing hits an apex on The Labor Of Love, his LP debut under the Sex Worker guise, and weve been soaking in its dark arts for months. Pulsing, lo-fi kraut electronics bubble and sputter under hazy arcs of weirdo vocal smear. Escapist disco drum machines cruise into the horizon under a canopy of dubby accents and FX percussion, sometimes peaking in harsh frenzies of echo-scream meltdowns. All three pieces function as anthems or elegies or protest songs articulating Daniels heavy anti-sex trafficking/enslaved bodies activist agenda but you dont have to know the depths of the ethical framework to grasp the vibe. An intensely unique and hyper-personal statement from one of our favorite West Coast music-dreamers. Black vinyl LPs in jackets designed by the artist. Edition of 450." - Not Not Fun.

Artist: SEX WORKER
Title: Waving Goodbye
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"In a weird case of life imitating art imitating life, Daniel Martin-McCormicks sophomore Sex Worker full length, Waving Goodbye, coincidentally gets released on the very day he embarks on his transamerican relocation road trip from the Bay to Brooklyn. Waving goodbye indeed. Sad times for California, but at least his parting gift/LP is as haunting and poignant and vivid as these six dance-damaged life/love/loss anthems. A huge evolutionary pole-vault upwards from 2009s The Labor Of Love, here the SW art-pulse echo-anguish aesthetic has been refined and reborn into fresh neon-smeared street grime crooner ballads (Cool Boy, Tough Love), sprawling forlorn trancefloor fantasias (Next To You, Honeymoon Babylon), plus a killer loner-ized Corona cover. Recorded over several months in SF and mastered in Berlin, WG is clearly his peak achievement to date and weve been jamming the shit out of it. Live, he brings a bizarro entertainer/MC vibe to the proceedings so for sure go see him when hes passing through yr zip code. Black vinyl LPs in jackets designed by Mr. DMM himself. Edition of 500." -Not Not Fun
