Personal Best

Personal Best by Team Dresch
Released: Jan 1995
Label: Chainsaw
In many ways, Team Dresch's debut is an insider's album. It's poised at the intersection of queercore and riot grrrl, two insular, indiest of indie scenes. And it's jam-packed with identity politics and inside jokes -- the title itself is a reference to a Sapphic coming-of-age Mariel Hemmingway vehicle that's become a cult film among queer girls. But don't waste time feeling left out, or you might miss the many, deep pockets of undeniable, universal appeal: Kaia Wilson's sweet, sweet vocal spasms; the wide and well-crafted stylistic variety; the sophisticated skill of "Fake Fight."
