Music: Marina LOVE + FEAR / Angelique Kidjo CELIA
Marina LOVE + FEAR
Another of those female auteurs (Tori Amos, Imogen Heap - who this sounds a LOT like, Kate Bush, Sarah Mclachlan, et al). This is nice, lovely Pop; super electronic and multi-layered. Some Latin influences, come melancholic ballads… all are well done and infectious. Fans of the aforementioned performer will certain dig this.
Angelique Kidjo CELIA
South African vocalist offers a delightfully fun and upbeat set. This lady has a great voice: deep and rich and full. Everything is beautifully handled and Kidjo is a POWERHOUSE. Non-fans of African-based music need not apply.For me, this was terrific and a highly enjoyable listen.
