If you’ve listened to any part of Kimya Dawson’s extensive back catalogue (including her collaborating with Adam Green as The Moldy Peaches) you will be familiar with her beautiful use of cassette four track to achieve an intimate sense of solitude. These home recordings make it feel as though you have a friend there with you whispering in your ear. And you do. Kimya is your friend.
Since the official Moldy Peaches hiatus Kimya has become a stronger musician and person. Following up on her critically acclaimed fourth album, Hidden Vagenda, Kimya’s highly anticipated fifth album Remember That I Love You comes to you from the saviours of indie, Popfrenzy, courtesy of the kind folks at K Records. Remember That I Love You is the latest chapter in the Kimya Dawson picture book, with the picture its drawing being one of love, humour and sorrow. It represents not only Kimya’s continued personal adaptation to the tumultuous world around her, but also the growing relationship between the fans and friends she needs just as much as they need her.
