To Commemorate Late Women Guitarist Christopher Reimer, Stream Both of Their Albums Today at 3pm

Posted By on Wed, Feb 29, 2012 at 1:29 PM

Sad news spread last week of the death of Christopher Reimer, guitarist for guitar-insipiring noise-pop band Women and, more recently, touring member of The Dodos, another known for the things they're able to pull off with guitars. He was just 26, passing away in his sleep from heart complications. To commemorate what seems like an all-round stand-up guy and his unquestionable musical talent, Women's label Jagjaguwar, in conjunction with their Canadian label Flemish Eye, is encouraging fans to stream both of Women's albums — 2008's self-titled breakthrough and 2010's Public Strain — starting at 3pm today. You can do so right here. Notice how the jackhammer guitars on "Drag Open" continuously dissolve into a trembling mass of noise? How they wreak havoc while staying hypnotizing? That's just the start of it.
