The music of Janine Rostron, bka Planningtorock, has always felt like a more traditional take on The Knife's haunting, brittle sonics, but her new single "Misxgyny Drxp Dead" definitely falls into a weirder category, blending blunt-edged bass with her ghostly, multi-layered voice. It feels like a logical move forward from her last album, W, which was lush and embraced a skewed vision of dance music. This, on the other hand, pushes away from any of that. It's often breathtaking and occasionally confusing and infinitely replayable.
