MIDNITE FUKK TRAIN sees CHRISTEENE leaving no soul unscathed. With shrill, explosive saxophones, crushing guitars, and militant percussion backing her ferocious vocals, she’s described by The Guardian as “...Tina Turner or Diamanda Galás at full stretch, at the pitch of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.” The album is a chaotic reflection of CHRISTEENE’s seclusion, holding traces of the world that she knew and experiences she had before the world flipped. Across eight tracks, she delivers a cripplingly heroic collection of songs articulating a raw, popular rage in these troubling times.
In a nod to Amanda Lear, CHRISTEENE punches through the opening track “ALPHABETS,” with words for the children of her generation, continuing her delightful onslaught with lead single “BEAUCOUP MOROCCO,” and today’s “GUTT IT.” A western punk’d “WINSTON” follows, before shifting cars mid trip with the delirious and dark “I WANNIT ALL,” reminiscent of David Lynch on a ketamine trip. In a surprise turn, CHRISTEENE tickles the ivories with raw, poetic sensitivity in “PIANO SONG,” and continues the trend with “LO PAID RUNWAY MODEL,” only to turn around with full force and drag her freshman track “FIX MY DICK” through the Fukkn Band she has gleaned for this powerful and arresting album.
MIDNITE FUKK TRAIN will be pressed on a special edition “unhealthy piss yellow” vinyl, with gatefold cover and inner black sleeve with lyrics.
