Norwegian art pop auteur Jenny Hval polished off her North American tour with ambient guitarist Mark McGuire with a show at the Empty Bottle on Friday night (4/18). Hval and her guitarist/bassist collaborator tore through tunes from last year's fantastic Innocence Is Kinky and also debuted some brand new material. Her sharp and commanding voice was paralyzing (in the best way possible) and she oozed confidence from the second she took the stage. Locals Wedding Dress got things started with a very solid opening set, and the show also served as a record release for their Loom 7". Pictures from the Empty Bottle are in this post.
