"Living legend Phew follows her brilliant “Light Sleep” album with another masterwork – “Voice Hardcore” - comprised entirely of her iconic, instantly recognizable voice, twisted, folded and layered over six mesmerizing tracks. Recorded at home in summer 2017, this release finds Phew exploring an idea she first hatched while recording her debut single “Finale” in 1980 – to, in her words, “make new reverberations that I have never heard before, using only my body.” 37 years later, once again Phew proves herself to be the exception to the rule – a veteran artist with an estimable catalog spanning decades who, rather than repeating herself or playing it safe, charges headfirst into uncharted territory.

Phews self-released tour CD of “Voice Hardcore” was voted #23 Best Album of 2017 by The Wire Magazine (“A woozy, opiate-soaked stumble into a sparse dreamworld”).

This Mesh-Key vinyl edition features a silver foil stamped cover and a double-sided, full color insert, and comes with an mp3 download card.

Bio:Phews career began in the 70s when she fronted Osaka punk group Aunt Sally (who released one album on Vanity Records in 1979). Ryuichi Sakamoto produced Phews first solo release in 1980 and in 1981 Pass Records issued her debut LP, a classic featuring Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit of Can, and Conny Plank. Shes since released six acclaimed solo albums and multiple collaborations with members of DAF, Einstürzende Neubauten, Boredoms, and more." - Mesh-Key.
