Arca / FKA Twigs

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

that song doesn't translate well live

the multitracks really make it, plus, i'm thinking those fans probably effected her voice/sound. should have done pendulum.

still, that curtain effect was p. sick, gotta give her props on her window dressing per usual

For most of Arca’s ascension in the music world—to the level where he’s now co-producing Björk’s next album—he’s kept himself mysterious. But, recently, he opened up to The Fader for what’s become the definitive piece on Alejandro Ghersi, the man who's been working under the alias Arca all this time. It’s in that cover story that Arca delved into his sexuality and introduced the world to Xen—a gender-ambiguous identity he’s been privately using since he was 13—who serves as both his alter ego and the subject of his new album. Xen’s a “very sassy, confident, very feminine side of [Ghersi],” Kanda explains. “It’s this kind of ghost. A spirit. Alejandro’s spirit.”

With that kind of hyperreality at the heart of his music, it’s not hard to surmise why a person like Ghersi and a persona like Arca would gel so naturally with Kanye, Björk, and FKA Twigs' own individual creative minds, which they all seem to get completely lost in when they’re in the zone. Alongside Twigs, Björk, and Kanye—all praised for both their avant-garde music and their subversive approaches—Arca fits right in as he continues to thwart gender binaries in both his personal life and his music. As enviable as his résumé already is, it seems he’s just warming up.
