killing time kills 2009: Ok, starting with the post for tonight, here’s Maja Ratkje’s cd entitled “Voice.” you may remember Maja from her project Fe-mail. This is her “a capella” cd of just her incredible voice and vocal chords. Mike Patton, eat your fucking heart out. Maja can do some INSANE shit with those chords. this is a really interesting listen, very different but really only for the adventurous listener as there is really nothing but jarring and strange vocals. she uses no electronics, no post production, and nothing else but those lungs. it’s amazing, really. worth a listen cause you will never hear anything else like it.
