Kurt Cobain's name has been on many a music writer's -- and Nirvana fan's -- lips over the past few weeks with the premiere of the documentary "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck." But Monday (May 18) everyone's probably going to be talking about his widow, former Hole leader Courtney Love.
Love released a new song today, "Miss Narcissist," via Ghost Ramp -- a label founded by Wavves' Nathan Williams -- and it's, in a few words, devastatingly rad.
Opening with a discordant squeal of guitars, Love sneers, "Miss Narcissist, come on/ Magnificent and obvious/ Bless us with your presence/ And your paranoia."
The growly jam builds and builds as Love describes everyone's favorite toxic friend/lover/mother/Courtney Love (the single art DOES feature her doppelganger looking in a broken mirror), until she reaches the explosive chorus, wailing, "Man, man, man, no apologies/ And in the end/ Miss Narcissist, it's us versus men."
If you haven't been following Ghost Ramp's releases this summer, you better get on that -- because Courtney's jam is only the latest in a string of exceedingly catchy songs. Williams previously released his side project Spirit Club's new self-titled record -- as well as a single with his OTHER side project, Sweet Valley, featuring Juicy J and Soulja Boy.
