I was going through Boomkat’s Top 100 albums of 2013, when I came across with Jessy Lanza’s debut, Pull My Hair Back, which was released by Hyperdub on last September.
After hearing for the first time (no pun intended) “Keep Moving”, the most straightforward song in the album, I was absolutely enthralled. Try to imagine one of Twin Shadow’s tunes on his debut, Forget, but sung over by a smooth and tender female voice. However, the remaining songs on the album are what we generally classify as R & B material and definitely Jeremy Greenspan’s (Junior Boys) work here is worth every praiseful sentence.
Thus, for those of you who are sometimes inattentive as me, we definitely need now to keep an eye on Lanza, particularly her tour dates, since probably there won’t be new material to be released this year.
