Jan, aka Kim Talon, will release a self-titled debut album on November 13th. With riot grrrl-infused vocals, fuzzed out guitar lines, and blissed out grunge rhythms, Jan is a genre-straddling album that packs a mean punch. Known for being the latter half of art-rock band Eagle and Talon, Kim is now joined by Chloe Saavedra (Smoosh) & Melinda Parks (Har Mar Superstar) when performing live. The album was produced by John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, The Gossip, Sleater-Kinney) in Seattle at London Bridge Studios.

“Work For The City” opens the record with a frenzied guitar line setting the stage for theatrical vocals.  “Red Crust Ow” immediately breaks into duelling post-punk guitar, while “All Of These Igloos“ is a melancholic song with a sweet melody led by simple piano plucks. The distorted guitar and running bass of “How To Beast” build to an explosion of growling vocals.

Having collaborated with Reggie Watts and toured with Sia and Obi Best to name a few, Kim Talon’s talent explodes into the forefront on her new solo foray.

The self-titled debut album is available from November 13th through Enclave
