In The Flat Field with Jane Woodman - An Interview

Dark girl por excelência, Jane Woodman, sua música esta envolta a tons cinzentos como deve ser, apocalíptica, densa, claustrofóbica e doentia, Miss Woodman prepara seu album Teenage Red que tende a ser um daqueles sopros de criatividade dentre da normalidade dos ditos goticos de hoje em dia, que na verdade não passam de pastiche, porque a grande e dolorosa verdade é que não se fazem mais Ian Curtis´ , Peter Murphy´s ou Robert Smith´s como antigamente, mas o frescor frio de Jane Woodman com dolorosas músicas como Crashing, Vapour e Poéme Èlectronique demonstram que temos uma nova musa.

O TBTCI obviamente aproveita o pré lancamento do album para explicitar quem é Jane Woodman, e avisa, cuidado com a garota....

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs?
I don't really have a formula, and i don't really know where any of this comes from. i just know i have to get it out. sometimes i start with lyrics, guitar, or vocals, and the song evolves from there. there are times when i wish it were more calculated.
