Puce Mary’s Late Junction mixtape
Danish noise artist Frederikke Hoffmeier, aka Puce Mary, hand picks 30 minutes of music from her personal collection.
Danish noise artist Frederikke Hoffmeier, aka Puce Mary, hand picks 30 minutes of music from her record collection for the latest edition of the Late Junction mixtape, presented by Nick Luscombe.
Hoffmeier has said she is drawn to music that expresses the extremes of human experience and her work is often both uncompromising and violent, using ear-splitting frequencies and harsh visual imagery. Her last album The Drought, which was her sixth, is rooted in industrial music and power electronics but goes beyond both, offering shuddering violence and personal vulnerability. For this mix she selects some surprising pieces from the music that has influenced her career so far.
Elsewhere we have new music from Sarathy Korwar which interrogates the idea of ‘Eastern’ music and we salute the season with a twinkly Christmas single by Sufjan Stevens.
