Review: MARIE DAVIDSON - Working Class Woman (Ninja Tune, 2018)


"No me juzguen por mis errores" (Marie Davidson dixit). Lo último en dark wave electrosónico llega cortesía de la canadiense Marie Davidson y su opus "Working Class Woman". 10 canciones en donde la Davidson se burla del mundillo que le rodea y repasa algunos tópicos tenebrosos de su rutina como artista sonora o trabajadora de las artes: su lidiar con los fans (can I roll your cables? I'm your biggest fan, I hear she always sleeps alone, cause she's fucked, who are you anyways?), con los galanes que se la quieren chifar, sus problemas psicológicos, etc. Marie a pesar de ser una de las puntales de la vanguardia electrónica contemporánea se ve que no se la cree. A alguien que ha trabajado como camarera para poder sustentar su música todo esto le ha de parecer una estupidez: la idiotez del artista realizado, del que ya la hizo. Hay bastante de eso y más en este "Working Class Woman", un título que le calza como anillo al dedo.

Sónicamente encontramos ecos de gente como los Throbbing Gristle más "pop" y la hornada de grupos techno que surgieron hacia fines de los 80 como Cassandra Complex, New Scene, Robotiko Rejekto, Friends of Charlotte, etc. Todo con su respectivo update gracias al IDM ambient que tanto amamos. Este es un documento heredero de la selecta tradición new wave fundada por héroes como Siouxsie & The Banshees, This Mortal Coil, Romeo Void, X-Mal Deutschland. Su lugar en las fiestas y discos más inquietas está aseguradísimo. 

"Working Class Woman" es un cachetadón que nos viene a demostrar lo poco que cambió la escena con sus poseros y arribistas cojudos de siempre. Para nuestra gracia -y la de la música- tenemos aún a maestras (y maestros) que como la Davidson encuentran exquisito placer poniendo el dedo en la llaga. Top 2018 en one.

"Don't judge me for my mistakes" (Marie Davidson dixit). The latest in electrosonik dark wave arrives courtesy of the Canadian Marie Davidson and her opus "Working Class Woman". 10 songs where Davidson mocks of the world around her and reviews some shady topics of her routine as a sound artist or arts worker: her dealing with fans (can I roll your cables? I'm your biggest fan, I hear she always sleeps alone, cause she's fucked, who are you anyways?), with the hunks who want to fuck her, her psychological problems, etc. Despite being one of the mainstays of the contemporary electronic avant-garde she doesn't believe it. To someone who has worked as a waitress for being able to sustain her music all this must seem stupid: the idiocy of the fulfilled artist, of the one who already made it. There is lots of that and more in this "Working Class Woman", a title that fits like a ring.

Sonically we find echoes of people like the "poppiest" Throbbing Gristle and the batch of techno groups that arose towards the end of the 80s like Cassandra Complex, New Scene, Robotiko Rejekto, Friends of Charlotte, etc. All with its respective update thanks to the ambient IDM we love so much. This is an inheriting document of the selected new wave tradition founded by heroes like Siouxsie & The Banshees, This Mortal Coil, Romeo Void, X-Mal Deutschland. Its place in parties and in the most restless discos is pretty assured.

"Working Class Woman" is a slap that shows us how little the scene has changed with its usual posers and arrivistes/social climbers. For our grace -and that of music- we still have masters who like Davidson find exquisite pleasure in putting their finger on the wound. Top 2018 in one.
