She Was Beautiful Even Though She Was Dead
Lately Blu Blu's solo album is named after a line taken from Franco's film 'Venus In Furs (1969).' The album sounds like a whirlpool of psychedelic-gothic-horror blown into sweet exhaustion, and juvenile enchantment. Leticia's vocals incorporate a haunting sound of early 60's girl groups with a sweet twist of darkness, it's lo-fi ambience creates a virtue of flaws and unselfconscious looseness. Lately Blu Blu's heart breaking-tortured vocals and ear tingling harmonies award alienation, loneliness, abandonment, escapades and death.
