Jessy Lanza's 'Pull My Hair Back' record has leaked. Some big things coming out of Hamilton via Kode9's Hyperdub label. Cool R&B hooks and sparse electronics with a voice to match. This record is like Grimes without the mystical nonsense and Junior Boys without the sulk (Greenspan produced so that's not suprising).
I'm pretty floored after a few full listens.
I think this is my favourite album of the year so far!
Hilarious that I posted about that other Lorde song because I thought it was really stinking up the Indie88 rotation (I expect that kind of stuff from the Edge). I'm not surprised to hear she came from Idol or something. It's not bad per se, I just don't understand how this is 'alt' or 'indie' - it's just over produced pop.
