Blood Oyster Releases a New ‘Biggest Hits’ Compilation and Visualizer Film In Help of Deliberate Parenthood


In 2021, YEDM did a New Artist Highlight on Portlander experimental artist Jason Wann and his conceptual challenge SINES which, at the moment, was on its third multi-track launch. By that album, referred to as A Sequence of Moments, Wann mixed all the most effective bits of synth pop and gave them a contemporary twist with dabbles of feminine vox accompaniments and totally different beat buildings. Not afraid to play with future bass, techno, bass home and, after all, classic synth pop, SINES reveals nice promise to be the subsequent Odesza or Washed Out hybrid.

Not quite a lot of followers or press, for that matter, knew that between all the stunning and celestial synth pop releases, Wann was additionally interstitially releasing below a special challenge title referred to as Blood Oyster. Virtually fully reverse in each means from SINES, Blood Oyster is entrenched in booty bass, hip hop and lure with an emphasis on ‘booty.’ The aptly named Let Booty Free that includes rapper Honey B. Candy launched in April 2021 adopted by the even dirtier Pussy Energy in October whereas Wann and SINES music associate Kitty Richardson have been engaged on A Sequence of Moments. It will need to have been a colossal mind toggle for Wann.

Designed as a tongue-in-cheek nose-thumbing on the patriarchy and its want to regulate ladies’s our bodies, Blood Oyster is about as deliberately nasty as a 2LiveCrew or a WAP with observe names like “From the Again” and “Throbbing Laborious Penis.” As these ironic assertion EPs which can be seemingly about objectification have been being made, Wann was turning into increasingly more pissed off with the best way ladies are both exploited or repressed over the previous few years. This frustration culminated, because it did for therefore many Individuals, within the Supreme Court docket’s determination to overturn the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court docket determination in June of 2022. Seen by many as the final word and most blatant signal that the US not solely doesn’t care about bodily autonomy for girls and other people with uteruses, this determination, made doable by the ushering in of two new far proper wing SCOTUS justices earlier than the top of Donald Trump’s presidential has unleashed a wave of states winding again the clock to pre-1973 guidelines and laws. States banned abortion clinics and Deliberate Parenthood, made even early time period abortions unlawful (together with in instances of rape) and a few states even made it doable for dad and mom who went by way of with an abortion to be tried for homicide.

With the dystopian nightmare described in Margaret Atwood’s fictional e book The Handmaid’s Story immediately turned actuality and Atwood a prophetess due to Brett Kavanaugh and particularly final Gilead Spouse Amy Coney Barrett, a great deal of artists determined to protest what has now been happening within the US for nearly a yr. Together with the likes of Pussy Riot, Phoebe Bridgers, Kendrick Lamar, Olivia Rodrigo, Mariah Carey, Lizzo et al., Wann felt he couldn’t go away this problem alone. All of the sudden a cheeky commentary on how ladies are utilized in media and abused in non-public was an all-out protest with Biggest Hits. Filled with tracks from the unique two Blood Oyster EPs plus heaps extra, the 30-track Biggest Hits makes a daring assertion that it doesn’t matter what type of legal guidelines are locations on them, ladies’s our bodies self-worth an sexuality will all the time be owned by them.

Wann as Blood Oyster makes this assertion in probably the most enjoyable means doable, with loud, colourful booty bass beats, unapologetic lyrics and so many catchy tunes. Watch out; you may end up singing the Daft Punk-esque “ASS” in your head at work or laughing on the someway each sexual and creepy “Everyone Loves Raymond” at inappropriate occasions. This complete “collection of bootlegs” is inappropriate, after all, however that’s the purpose. A tapestry of impropriety woven with rather more experimental music and flare than we’ve seen from Wann to this point, the album juxtaposes the pure sensual potential of ladies and humanity in opposition to a few of its worst detractors so present what this oppression and management can truly do. With so lots of our idols fallen and a lot harm completed within the title of propriety, it’s time to take an excellent laborious have a look at rape tradition; simply ask “Dr. Huxtable.”

As if the Blood Oyster album weren’t sufficient, Wann has additionally put collectively an arty “collection of visualizers” (who knew that album title can be such a enjoyable callback?) to go together with Biggest Hits. As a result of it’s a bootleg album, Wann has put the veritable film up on his Vimeo account without spending a dime public viewing. Not fairly as soiled visually as it’s musically, the multimedia aspect of Biggest Hits takes the artistry of the album up just a few notches. Watch it with some good audio system on an excellent TV and also you’ve principally acquired your self an at-home rave. Humorous, kitschy and filled with the love Wann has for girls that listeners to the album alone might not really feel, the visualizer film is unquestionably value a watch (probably on some mind-altering substances).

Even when you’re into into booty bass or experimental bass or enjoyable visualizers, there’s one more reason to assist Blood Oyster and the Biggest Hits album: all income from its buy on Bandcamp will likely be donated to Deliberate Parenthood in Amy Coney Barrett’s title. That’s proper, within the custom of Mike Pence, Ted Cruz and different anti-uterus rights politicians, Wann has determined that Coney Barrett needs to be the subsequent recipient of this honor to be reminded on daily basis that those that worth the lives of ladies and kids will proceed to combat for his or her well being.
