Multi-instrumentalist Midwife (Madeline Johnston) continues her forward-moving momentum with the release of her “Send the Pain Below” cover song and video. Putting her trademark crystalline flair on the 2002 hit song, “Send the Pain Below” (Chevelle), Midwife closes out the 6-song nu metal covers collection from The Flenser.
Midwife is the moniker of Madeline Johnston, who lives and works in San Miguel, New Mexico by way of Denver, Colorado, where she spent the better half of the past decade developing the experimental pop project. Last June, Midwife released her sophomore Flenser full-length Luminol. Pensive and hypnotic, the album showcases Johnston’s musical prowess at its finest and is both dream-like and dispiriting.
