Lose #4 by Michael Deforge (Koyama Press) $8.00 – Tremendous! DeForge’s well-oiled line skates through the Stud File, each story shedding it’s snakeskinnery onto the next. From leather terror to royal lace to Stacyface, this issue is an ode to the body as a husk and an assault on the idea of corpus control. Flesh, rendered alternately as vampirically smooth and bacterially roccoco is bound up in narratives of contemporary methods of “information sharing” and “social networking” and the effect is straight up cut-to-the-bone sci fi plastic surgery. Witty, sly and lovely to hold exuding a warm Canadian glow. -EF

Let Me Clear My Throat by Elana Passarello $15.95 – From Farinelli, the eighteenth century castrato who brought down opera houses with his high C, to the recording of “Johnny B. Goode” affixed to the Voyager spacecraft, Let Me Clear My Throat dissects the whys and hows of popular voices, making them hum with significance and emotion. There are murders of punk rock crows, impressionists, and rebel yells; Howard Dean’s “BYAH!” and Marlon Brando’s “Stella!” and a stock film yawp that has made cameos in movies from A Star is Born to Spaceballs. The voice is thought’s incarnating instrument and Elena Passarello’s essays are a riotous deconstruction of the ways the sounds we make both express and shape who we are—the annotated soundtrack of us giving voice to ourselves.
