REVIEW: JAMIE LIDELL: JAMIE LIDELL

Jamie Lidell’s last album, Jim, was a fantastic mix of soul, R&B and pop. There were even hints of country and bluegrass. The one thing the album wasn’t? Electronica. But his new self-titled album is a gorgeous, electro-pop/futuristic R&B masterpiece. Jamie was one half of the electro duo Super Collider and here he...

REVIEW: GAZELLE TWIN: MAMMAL

Gazelle Twin, otherwise known as Elizabeth Walling, is a British musician hailing from Brighton. Her debut album, The Entire City, is often described as “art rock,” but this E.P. is pure trip-hop. Well, 98% trip-hop. There’s a distinct electronica influence here, too. Elizabeth’s vocals on “Heartbeat” especially call to mind the brilliant Fever...
