This Week In The Voice: Lana Del Rey, Japanese Sound Systems, The Lijadu Sisters, And Wheelchair Sports Camp
The Lijadu Sisters.
In this week's Village Voice, out now: Camille Dodero gets the cover with her profile of Kalyn Heffernan, a 24-year-old with the brittle-bone disability osteogenesis imperfecta and leader of the hip-hop outfit Wheelchair Sports Camp; Marlon Bishop gets down with the Japanese dancehall scene on the eve of one of their soundsystems participating in Saturday's Global Clash in Crown Heights; Richard Gehr talks to the identical twins the Lijadu Sisters about reclaiming their catalog of white-hot Afrofunk, which is currently being reissued by Knitting Factory Records; and I look at Lana Del Rey and Tori Amos and the idea of ditching one's past in the Internet age.
