About Jane Woodman:

From a mysterious corner of San Francisco, Jane Woodman has emerged with Poéme Èlectronique; named after the 1958 World’s Fair Exhibit in Brussels by Le Corbusier, Iannis Xenakis, and Edgard Varése, in appreciation for the early connection of electronic music with architecture and graphics.

Known for intimate but biting post-punk and new wave textures, the founding member of major label band Van Gogh’s Daughter and Alfred (with Zoë Keating) has released a defining collection of electronics and guitar-driven thoughts and stories.

Her debut solo album, Poéme Èlectronique, contains four songs swarming with dream-inducing guitars and dark secret vocals, perfect for late night road trips. The cover is a 10-second character sketch of ‘Torrential’, a gritty superhero loosely based on Siousxie Sioux and The Crow, flash animation that will appear in her videos now and again with a couple of friends. The title track evokes Eno-esque impressions drunk with romance and wishful thinking for the future; ‘Vapour ‘ is a heart-pounding, contemplative, foggy ride. Favorites are reported to be ‘Black Forest’, a noisy anthem for troubled times, and ‘Crashing’, the first video release, that becomes a brooding Warholian collage about travel and a volatile relationship. The song includes additional percussion by PC Muñoz (Joan Jeanrenaud). Additional vocals on ‘Poéme Èlectronique’ by Cynthia Taylor (Third Eye Blind, Dodos).
