Jenny Wilson, 'Hardships!' (Gold Medal)

7
Hardships!
Critical Mass
Label: Gold Medal

by Marc Hogan

"If I'd returned from a fight, then people would've called me a hero," goes the chorus to the title track from Jenny Wilson's second solo album. But when a woman rolls out of the delivery room, there's nobody handing her any medals. Hardships! confronts the domestic and psychological toil of contemporary motherhood with some valiantly unlikely weapons: the syncopated clatter of post-Timbaland R&B, the organic expressiveness of Nina Simone jazz, and Wilson's own icy melisma, previously heard assisting fellow Swedish invaders Robyn and the Knife.
