Sees The Light
Sounds Like: The Vivian Girls bassist’s second solo LP has more punk flavor and edgy rockness to it, less of a wispy beach girl vibe, which makes it totally not that bad!
Free Association: Not just a trendy cute girl who can barely play a guitar, it seems.
For Fans Of: Blondie + Jay Reatard, Bikini Kill x The Shangri-Las, girls with bangs.
Georgia Anne Muldrow
Sounds Like: The productive/brilliant multi-instrumentalist and inspiring free-form vocalist has a keen sense of funk and R&B.
Free Association: Steering this tripped-out mothership straight toward Galaxy Funk.
For Fans Of: Erykah Badu/Angie Stone/Nina Simone, Sa-Ra + acid jazz, nu-R&B.
(Yep Roc Records)
Sounds Like: The 53-year-old Jam and Style Council founder’s awesomely eclectic 11th album is a mixed bag, from pensive/quiet to vibrant/retro and back again x 10.
Free Association: So many genres, tempos, moods and sounds—quite an achievement.
Time for a big Bang breakthrough?
