I adore Trent Reznor. Trent Reznor is my future husband. He’s full of dreamy muscles and angst. I like me some angst.
His first post-Nine Inch Nails contribution to music is a collaboration with his wife to create How to Destroy Angels. And they have just released their first song to the good people of the internet. And I really, really like it.
I love when I decide all I want to listen to is Nine Inch Nails, and I enter “Nine Inch Nails” into the iTunes search, and Ridley Bent’s Nine Inch Nails always winds up playing and taking me by surprise.
I downloaded this song for two reasons. The first, because it was entitled “Nine Inch Nails.” I judge books by the cover, I admit it. The second is because of Kate Reid, an amazingly talented, hilarious and beautiful musician. I met her under completely unrelated to music circumstances, and was definitely drawn in by her wicked style (something about the fire-engine red pompador she was rocking at the time). She mentioned that she was playing in Winnipeg, and I went to see her play and was so impressed.
