Chrissy Jones contacted me a few months ago, asking for a song she could use as a soundtrack to create a vision she had circulating in her head. Of course I said yes, I mean, have you SEEN her other videos? I knew it was going to be good. And the result is, to put it bluntly, and pun intended, ballsy.
review by Jane Chardiet for IMPOSE Magazine:
“Wet Pet” is our first look at Unicorn Hard-on’s forthcoming LP, ; out September 30 on Spectrum Spool Records. It’s a slow burning subtle jammer. Spaced out beats are backed with dreamy, gyrating synthesizers and small bites of bright noise. Valerie Martino has maintained the project since 2003 and can be credited as one of the pioneers of the noise mass migration from harsh wall noise and power electronics to beat driven ‘technoise’.

To add my own perspective, I find the underlying tones in this video an incredible visual representation of my own musical journey and struggle of blurred lines. You can decide for yourself what this video represents. Define it if you want. But you may find yourself in a puzzling state, playing it over and over, and possibly coming to terms with something that very well might not have been your first impression.
