The thrilling debut album from this intense New York City trio makes their city feel alive once again
Khia : My Neck, My Back
There have been musical tributes to cunnilingus before but the joys of rimming have as yet gone unsung. Until now
Even the purportedly ‘clean’ version (the one we prefer, truth be told) wouldn’t get within a mile of daytime radio. Which hopefully doesn’t mean that ‘My Neck, My Back’ will languish in obscurity, because it’s brilliant.

Cracking, in every sense.
