Jenny Hval
White Hinterland

Jenny Hval has made a name for herself as an artist, musician, and writer both in Norway and abroad. When her third record, Viscera, was released in 2011, The Wire magazine described the record as "a stunning achievement both conceptually and musically."

Multidisciplinary and transgressive are words often employed to describe her art, but Hval's polyphonic artistry is, in fact, seamlessly interwoven between musical, literary, visual, and performative modes of expression. Despite her young age, she has already infused, carved, and modulated an artistic voice that is altogether present, accessible, and obscurely complex at the same time.

Viscera was recorded with Hval's own free rock trio and overflowed with intimate detail and surrealistic bodily imagery. The follow-up, Innocence Is Kinky (2013), was produced in Bristol, England, by PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish, who helped bring out the intimate qualities of her lyrics and sharpened her improvisational tendencies, weaving spellbinding new forms of intelligent, experimental pop with injections from mythology, theory, and gender politics.

Established in Boston in 2004, The Fenway Recordings Sessions is a regular concert series featuring a mix of the best new and developing indie artists and established acts playing the city's clubs. The shows are hosted by Fenway Recordings at several of Boston’s small venues, including Brighton Music Hall, Cafe 939, and the Middle East, and feature DJ sets from resident DJ Carbo, (Fenway Recordings’ founder, Mark Kates), along with occasional special guest DJs.
