Six prickly no-wave bullets on this self-titled debut mini-LP from French polymath Lizzy Mercier Descloux as Rosa Yemen. Coming just one year after the landmark No New York comp, this one follows in much the same aesthetic - totally stripped back, uber-minimal detuned death-screech guitar thrashing that unload with such an urgency to the point they've whizzed past you before even haven't chance to adjust. Mercier-Descloux's vocals are epic. Attitude laced, zero-fuxz-given, insistent and impossible to ignore. Ageless! Top recommend for those into Glenn Branca / The Contortions / Malaria! et al.. (NM/NM).
