valet “naked acid” compact disc
- we went there

|march 2008 release ; second solo set from jackie-o motherfucker’s honey owens ...|
while i love the lazy-days west-coast feel of the opener (rife with acidic backwards guitar lines) it’s the blissed out vocal-cloud & synth-ripples of “drum movie” that take the cake (listen to the sound-sample) ... great stuff !!!
title: naked acid
catalog #: krank116
formats available: cd
release date: march 3, 2008
naked acid is the second solo release from portland artist valet, aka honey owens. she states: "these songs were inspired by the pacific northwest landscape, semi-conscious dream states and the idea of one's dna code being accessed as eternal memory. i started off with the idea to make a 'songs' record but it really didn't turn out that way. instead the record became it's own story. track one is a static beach journey duet with adrian orange, and tracks 3, 4 and 5 are collaborations with mark evan burden (silentist) on drums."
from the gentle narcotic haze of the album opener "we went there," which is dissected by honey's trademark incendiary guitar work, to the lazy alien country blues of "fuck it," and through the hyperventilating rhythmic distortion of the closer "streets," naked acid is a fever dream of ghostly incantation and smudged psychedelia.
honey owens follows up her widely lauded blood is clean album from early 2007 with another trip through the fertile garden of her imagination. she will be touring starting in mid-february to support the album.
