I can recommend this compilation very highly to anyone with tastes that run to female-led post-punk outfits such as Raincoats, Au Pairs, Kleenex, etc. The Erik Satie material here is very much in their own style, rather than any sort of traditional performance of his work. The playing here is tighter than that of many of the aforementioned groups; these women are confident and capable of pushing the boundaries of Pop Music just that amount farther to make them essential, if late-coming to my attention, members of the Post-Punk canon.
