Track Of The Day: She Makes War - 'Delete (Live from Rattlesnake)'

For those who are unaware, She Makes War is the solo project of Bristol based multi-instrumentalist, visual artist and digital polymath Laura Kidd. Unfortunately I didn't get to see her supporting Suede at their magical Bristol show two weeks ago, due to excessive traffic in the city. So the release of the new seven track live mini-album 'Rattlesnake Live' earlier this week (November 3) came at a time when I was in need of a taste of the SMW live experience. This selection of superb recordings makes you realise what an exceptional talent LK is. 

On the ghostly, addictive 'Delete', Kidd creates a fascinating piece of art made up completely of her looped live vocals, proving that a great imagination can make a good idea go a long way. As far as live albums go, this one often involves your ears and senses in a way that makes you feel as if you're actually in the venue. A review of this mini-LP will be coming to the reviews section in a few days, until then pick up a copy of 'Rattlesnake Live' from Bandcamp HERE. The gorgeous 'Slow Puncture' is available from there as a free download, too good to miss.
