Kimya Dawson’s ‘Thunder Thighs’ Features Aesop Rock, John Darnielle

    For her seventh solo album, singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson is looking to expand her sound with some help from her talented friends on Thunder Thighs. Those friends include the Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle, the Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture, and Aesop Rock, the last of whom also produced several beats for the album. Additionally, she reached out to the Forever Young Senior Citizen Rock and Roll Choir and the Olympia Free Choir to complement the blend of pianos and string arrangements heard on the record.

    Thunder Thighs is due out Oct. 25 via Burnside Distribution. You can view the track listing and watch a live version of “All I Could Do,” which was shot by Aesop Rock, below.
