Niki and The Dove

Instinct

(Mercury UK)

Sounds Like: The boy-girl duo from Stockholm’s true debut is a stunner; a blissful and lush wave of dark and synth-heavy electronic noise that Sweden’s known for.

Free Association: Wish there’d been more of these flavors on Lykke Li’s sophomore.

For Fans Of: Austra x the Knife + Robyn, Fever Ray with Kate Bush, creepy funk.

 

 

Lianne La Havas

Is Your Love Big Enough?

(Nonesuch)

Sounds Like: The awe-inspiring debut of the London-based singer-songwriter is a beautiful mix of soul, jazz, minimalism and pop full of artistry and intelligent heart.

Free Association: Sometimes, it gets a little sullen, but her singing makes it all worth it.

For Fans Of: Nina Simone + Corrine Bailey Rae, Me’Shell Ndegeocello, fresh talent.

 

 

Antony and The Johnsons

Cut the World

(Secretly Canadian)
