Listen of the Week: Kristin Kontrol

Kristin Kontrol, X-Communicate

The title track brings out most clearly the krautrock influence that Gundred flirts with throughout the album, with the guitar only ever being used for colour and punctuation. In fact, if there’s one key thread linking these songs together – other than the consistently strident vocals, easily her most confident to date – it’s the percussion, the thumping electronic beats that dictate the pace throughout.

Friday Lyrics Mash: Hotline 867-5309

Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
You used to call me on my cell phone
867-5309
Ever since I left the city
That can only mean one thing
Call me on my cell phone
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309

That can only mean one thing
Call me on my cell phone
867-5309
You give me somethin’ I can hold on to
Going places where you don’t belong
Call me on my cell phone
867-5309
That can only mean one thing
Why you always touching road
‘Cause ever since I left the city
I know when that hotline bling
That can only mean one thing
Hey!

Right now, you’re someone else
Jenny, I got your number
867-5309
You was in a zone, yeah
You started wearing less and goin’ out more
You, you got exactly what you asked for
(5309) 867-5309
Jenny, I got your number
And I know when that hotline bling
Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
Late night when you need my love
867-5309
Oh, you don’t know me, but you make me so happy

I know when that hotline bling
That can only mean one thing
Who saw your name and number on the wall
Jenny, Jenny, you’re the girl for me
Used to always stay at home, be a good girl
For the price of a dime I can always turn to you
867-5309
I tried to call you before, but I lost my nerve
867-5309
You used to call me on my cell phone
(5309) 867-5309
I know when that hotline bling

Girl you got me down, you got me stressed out
Hangin’ with some girls I’ve never seen before
Late night when you need my love
I need to make you mine
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309
Jenny, don’t change your number
You should just be yourself
I tried my imagination, but I was disturbed
These days, all I do is –

You used to call me on my cell phone
867-5309
Everybody knows and I feel left out
Ever since I left the city
I got it, (I got it), I got it
That can only mean one thing
And I know when that hotline bling
(5309) 867-5309
Jenny, don’t change your number
Ever since I left the city, you, you, you
I need to make you mine
Ever since I left the city…

Late night when you need my love
Late night when you need my love
For a good time, for a good time call
Late night when you need my love
You and me we just don’t get along
You don’t need nobody else, no
You don’t need no one else
I need to make you mine
Jenny, I call your number
You used to call me on my cell phone
Call me on my cell phone
I got your number on the wall
Hey, Jenny, don’t change your number

What Belongs to Us

                                 While waiting
                                 for a creaking
                                 elevator to arrive,
                                 two women discuss
                                 a lost earring.
                                 Their feet tap.
                                 Their eyes shift.
                                 Their voices ache.
               Their elev                                          ator opens.
                                 Their concerns linger.

British Road Movies, by Kate Jackson

It’s an album that sums up the mantra ‘good things come to those who wait’. There’s not a bad track on British Road Movies, and those who have been pining for years to hear Jackson’s voice again will be more than satisfied. It may not be the return of the Long Blondes, but this could evolve into something even better.

Friday Lyrics Mash: My Boopiate

I’ll do anything you want
I want to be your lady, maybe
Boy you’ve got all I need
I want to be your lady, maybe
I need you, I want you, to have you, hold you, squeeze you
Let me lay my holy hand upon you
Just do everything I tell you to do

I want to be your lady, maybe
Every night I pray I can call you my man (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You are broken now, but faith can heal you

If your game is on, give me a call boo
Now don’t judge or question
You are broken now, but faith can heal you

Then my love will come easy
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
We both want to rape you
So I’m going out, every weekend
Correct with your game boy (no, no)
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
If your game is on, give me a call boo
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
If your game is on, give me a call boo

My God’s will becomes me
Just do everything I tell you to do
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow

At night, I think of you
But if you can please me
My God’s will becomes me

We both want to rape you
If your game is on, give me a call boo
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow
I’ve got you on my mind
If your game is on, give me a call boo
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
I want to be your lady, maybe
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
From what I see
Just to see my boo again
Open my eyes, blind me with your light now

Like me, like me, like me, like me
At night, I think of you
Freak me boy, I’m thinking of you
I’ve been watching you
He has needs like I do
At night, I think of you
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
Boy you should know that
At night, I think of you
Your secret admirer
No you can’t be lame boy
Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow

I want, to be your lady maybe
Choices always were a problem for you
If your game is on, give me a call boo

I want, to be your lady maybe
At night, I think of you
If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me

Can go deeper if you can come
These feelings I have for you
Now don’t you judge or question

At night, I think of you
Jesus Christ, why don’t you come save my life now
I want, to be, your lady, maybe
If your game is on, give me a call boo
He has needs like I do.
When he speaks out, he speaks through me.
Let me lay my holy hand upon you.
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
I want, to be, your lady, maybe
And boy every night I am constantly thinking of you
Open my eyes and blind me with your light
What you need is someone strong to guide you
What you need is someone strong to guide you

If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me
If your game is on, give me a call boo
What you need is someone strong to guide you

Jesus Christ, why don’t you come save my life now
If your lovin’s strong, gonna give my all to you
We both want to rape you

Every day I pray my heart can win
At night, I think of you
At night, I think of you
