Jenny Hval’s latest outing ‘Apocalypse Girl’ sees international release – a string of strong reviews abroad this week.

Jenny Hval’s new Sacred Bones Records album ‘Apocalypse, girl’ sees its international release this week and a number of favourable reviews of ‘Apocalypse Girl’ have already begun to trickle in.

The Sunday Times is featuring ‘Apocalypse Girl’ as The Album of The Week.

A number of other media outlets have also rolled the dice this week and come up with some rewarding reading for Jenny Hval fans:
Pitchfork 7.9
Guardian 4/5
Popmatters 8/10
The Line of Best Fit 9/10 

The New York Times’ Press Play feature which debuts new music the media outlet deems noteworthy, ran an exclusive stream and presentation of the much-anticipated outing last week.

The 405 also talked to Hval last week on a wide range of topics including what sexuality is and freeing it from capitalism.

Said Jenny Hval to Music Norway in an interview published earlier this year as she talked about her relocation to the US, working with the Sacred Bones label and future plans:

– I’m a big fan of the way Sacred Bones conducts business. They have a small team and focus on music that other labels don’t dare to touch. They’re doing things the right way and manage to achieve some really good results. They manage to reach out with strange music to core audiences as well as to wider customer segments that are willing to seek out new music. They focus on the music and gave me the opportunity to be based out of NYC – both of which are important factors for me.

June 10th marks the start of Jenny Hval’s European tour in support of the album release with gigs in the UK, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany and Denmark. Tour dates and venue info HERE.
