Burroughs’ protégé, Vogue cover model & experimental political poet - this 16-track anthology celebrates an extraordinary 30+ year career, serving as a curated millinery from a many-hatted original.

Winer is the last of the Beats: stream of consciousness with a direct current, detailed effortlessness & flippancy as praxis. “A woman’s work is never done, & underpaid, & repetitious.”  she presents as an immutable fact, more effective in its resolute emotionless than any impassioned cry. Underpinning her words lie a revolving cast, from Jon Hassell to Jah Wobble, who use the found-sound palette of Eno & Byrne & combine it with the throb of dub. Incredibly effective, not only in creating the dense atmosphere that Winer thrives in, but also in providing the spark for Trip-Hop to reportedly explode from.

Light in the Attic is ecstatic to announce When I Hit You—You’ll Feel It: a 16-track anthology that celebrates the extraordinary work of musician, poet, and author, Leslie Winer. When I Hit You—You’ll Feel It spans Winer’s three-decade-long musical career: from her groundbreaking solo work in the early ‘90s to her latest inspired projects. Featuring musical contributions from Jon Hassell, Helen Terry, Jah Wobble, Renegade Soundwave’s Karl Bonnie, and others, the collection also spotlights Winer’s diverse collaborations, and unearths previously-unreleased recordings. “The definition of a hidden gem” – John Peel. “The world seems finally to be catching up to Leslie Winer, whose startling intelligence and singular vision shine through her copious recording life.” – Max Richter. Includes previously unreleased tracks, inspired collaborations, and material from Leslie’s groundbreaking 1990 solo debut, Witch. Featuring musical contributions from Jon Hassell, Helen Terry, Jah Wobble, Renegade Soundwave’s Karl Bonnie, Christophe Van Huffel, Jay Glass Dubs, Mari G. Mooney, and Diamond Version, amongst others. Newly remastered by the GRAMMY®-nominated engineer John Baldwin. 24-page booklet featuring a new interview with Leslie and liner notes by acclaimed author, critic and compilation co-producer Wyndham Wallace, along with an essay by award-winning writer and scholar Louis Chude-Sokei. Newly remastered by the GRAMMY®-nominated engineer John Baldwin, When I Hit You—You’ll Feel It will be available in multiple special 2xLP editions, on CD, and across digital platforms. The album includes a new interview with Winer, captured by the compilation’s co-producer, acclaimed author and critic Wyndham Wallace. Rounding out the package is an insightful essay by the award-winning writer and scholar Louis Chude-Sokei and an original cover collage by the renowned British photographer and artist, Linder, and design by designer Christopher Shannon. "Light In The Attic's new compilation spanning Leslie Winer's criminally slept-on career is near-perfect and a must-listen" - REISSUE OF THE WEEK THE QUIETUS
