Music Review: “Ribbons” by Heliotropes


TRACK 6

“Ribbons”

From Heliotropes’ A Constant Sea

MANIMAL VINYL

Liner notes: Jessica Numsuwankijkul projects eerie calm as fuzzed-out guitars and brutal drums build to a thrilling peak.

Behind the music: This all-woman Brooklyn quartet got early attention for its striking covers of Roky Erickson’s “I Walked with a Zombie” and Nirvana’s “Negative Creep.”

Check it out if you like: Wild Flag, Dinosaur Jr., and Vivian Girls.

This review originally appeared in our July/August issue of Mother Jones.
