listen to: Work For The City


JAN, aka Kim Talon, will release a self-titled debut album on November 13th. With riot grrrl-infused vocals, fuzzed out guitar lines, and blissed out grunge rhythms, JAN is a genre-straddling album that packs a mean punch. Known for being the latter half of Los Angeles’ art-rock band Eagle and Talon, Kim, now Brooklyn based, is joined by Chloe Saavedra (Smoosh) & Melinda Parks (Har Mar
Superstar) when performing live. The album was produced by John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, The Gossip, Sleater-Kinney) in Seattle at London Bridge Studios. “Work For The City” opens the record with a frenzied guitar line setting the stage for theatrical vocals. “Red Crust
Ow” immediately breaks into dueling post-punk guitar while “All Of These Igloos“ is a melancholic song with a sweet melody led by simple piano plucks. The distorted guitar and running bass of “How To Beast” build to an explosion of growling vocals. Having collaborated with Reggie Watts and toured with Sia & Obi Best to name a few, Kim Talon’s talent explodes into the forefront on her new solo foray.

“shoegaze-y, grunge … with a touch of riot grrrl.”
„PAPER Magazine“

“… just enough noisy, riot grrl-flecked angst to make it the perfect soundtrack for stomping the shit out of some fallen foliage.”
„VICE’s Noisey“

“Fans of that middle ground between melody and grunge will undoubtedly enjoy…”
„Under The Radar“

“Refashioning ’90s alt into a crystalline sound”
„Refinery 29n“

„’Work For The City’ begins with Talon’s ethereal, chorallike
vocals before switching gears and heading in a
shoegaze-y, grunge direction with a touch of riot grrrl.“
„Paper Magazine“
