Klein is used to being labeled a “riot-grrrl throwback,” and you don’t have to look far to see links. She openly admits that Sara Marcus’ history of the movement, Girls to the Front, was the initial inspiration for Permanent Wave. And even on that night at 285 Kent, J.D. Samson’s presence left the room a mere two steps away from the original scene. Samson shot to fame with Le Tigre, an electro-dance group fronted by Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna. Given the fact that we’re in the midst of a “full-blown riot grrrl nostalgia trip,” it’d be easy to assume that you can put Permanent Wave on the same Brooklyn retro shelf as manual typewriters and artisanal pickles.

Also, maybe consider reading the essay Klein wrote for us on Patti Smith?

“Nothing really prompted me other than the desire to make and complete a solo record. I feel like it was long overdue. The parts were written for therapeutic reasons and originally had no order to them, the reason I wanted to arrange them into songs was because I had never lived up to that challenge before."
