Norwegian art pop musician Jenny Hval welcomed her new album, Innocence Is Kinky, in April via Rune Grammofon. IIS is her second album under her own name, and she previously released material under the moniker Rockettothesky. It was recorded by longtime PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish, and the album isn't quite available in North America yet. It should be soon though, as Hval will be heading stateside for her first-ever North American tour in September. That tour includes a performance at the Pygmalion Music Festival on September 28, and a TBA Chicago show on September 29. Stay tuned for more information.
