New York’s iconic feral beast, CHRISTEENE, announced a new full length album, MIDNITE FUKK TRAIN, out on November 11 via Austin non-profit label Spaceflight Records. Aptly titled, the album sees CHRISTEENE leaving no soul unscathed with shrill, explosive saxophones, crushing guitars, and militant percussion backed by her affectionately named, and carefully curated, Fukkn Band. To celebrate the announcement, CHRISTEENE provided a sneak peak with the scuzzed out single “BEAUCOUP MOROCCO.”
In a nod to Amanda Lear, CHRISTEENE punches through the opening track “ALPHABETS” with words for the children of her generation, continuing her delightful onslaught with “BEAUCOUP MOROCCO,” “GUTT IT,” and a western punk’d “WINSTON,” before shifting cars mid trip with a delirious and dark “I WANNIT ALL,” reminiscent of David Lynch on a ketamine trip. In a surprise turn, CHRISTEENE tickles the ivories with raw, poetic sensitivity in “PIANO SONG,” and spins a lush arrangement of loneliness in “LO PAID RUNWAY MODEL,” only to turn around with full force and drag her freshman track “FIX MY DICK” through the “Fukkn Band” she has gleaned for this powerful and arresting album.
