Tim Kinsella and Jenny Pulse have consummated their love on disc. The result is Good Fuck, an erotic exploration of experimental literary techniques and adventurous electronic beats.
Seeking an intimate creative environment to develop their musical concepts, Kinsella and Pulse journeyed deep into isolation. “We packed the car and drove 13 hours to The Millay Colony in upstate New York: an artist’s colony in The Berkshires, miles down a private road, next to 100,000 acres of national forest,” Kinsella shares.
There’s audible chemistry in Good Fuck’s sound; Kinsella’s extensive history in genre-pushing rock and roll (Joan of Arc, Cap’n Jazz) is strikingly complimented by Pulse’s fresh ear for minimalist electro sounds. Pulse’s experience in electronic music production was essential in guiding the project. “Before I started dating Tim he sent me all these demos that he was working on,” Pulse recalls. “He said, 'Maybe we can do something with these?' I said, 'No, we need to do this completely from scratch.' “
Kinsella and Pulse achieved complete artistic symbiosis in composing Good Fuck’s music. “To a large degree we don't even know who programmed what beat, and who programmed what synth line,” Kinsella reflects.
