The artist explores the unrest in her home country of the U.K.—and develops a new stage persona to match.
I first knew of Kusum Normoyle because she was the woman who dressed completely in black—black shirt, black pants, black shoes—and screamed, really loudly, in public spaces. She was untouchably cool. But more specifically, these series of performances were called S.I.T.E. (Screaming in the Everyday), where Normoyle would scream into a microphone, her body curved […]
” Part of Womens Work Week – a celebration of international women working in experimental and electronic music genres. If you enjoy this review you may also be interested in one of these additional releases that we are covering this week on Toneshift.net: “
I’m always thrilled when I have the opportunity, amidst so much new talent that I’m exposed to regularly, to discover an artist’s work, an experienced septuagenarian, for the very first time.

When I first heard it I was just fully flabbergasted and surprised about its discovery through a good friend (graham Boosey) who had seen this lady perform in concert. I was fully blown away by just hearing this album so imagine how blown away his enthusiasm was, but now with the time passing gracefully and the music flourishing like a flower over time in my own memory storage system, I thought reviewing it for a second time was a nice little thing to…
