Kim Deal – “Walking With A Killer” & “Dirty Hessians”

Between the Pixies and the Breeders, Kim Deal has been blowing minds for as long as anyone can remember, but she’s somehow never gotten around to releasing any solo music until now. Deal is starting up her own single series, selling extremely limited 7″ platters on her website, and the first entry is already sold out. Fortunately, YouTube exists, which means we can now hear both “Walking With A Killer” and “Dirty Hessians.” The former is a weirdly romantic, scratchy ballad with a few extremely satisfying guitar-eruptions, and the latter is a slow-building postpunk instrumental. Listen to both below.

“Walking With A Killer” b/w “Dirty Hessians” is out digitally today. Keep an eye out for news of future singles at Deal’s website.
