Marnie Weber’s Songs Hurt Me is a seminal performance art meets post-punk album from 80’s Los Angeles. A multifaceted artist, Marnie cut her teeth in Los Angeles’s punk music and performance art scene, has exhibited artwork, films, sculptures, collages, sound installations in museums around the world, and is probably most well known for creating the cover art for Sonic Youth’s A Thousand Leaves. Songs Hurt Me was born out of Marnie’s earliest performance art characters: a deer, an old woman, a manic courtesan, and a butterfly. The songs are ethereal and haunting, at times reaching dark, industrial zones, and at others, almost lullaby-like calm.
