Boomkat Product Review:
Nicolas Jaar's Other People coax out a pair of gauzy, beat-driven aces from Catalan avant-pop composer/singer, Lucrecia Dalt. Let's get it out of the way up front, her music bears some striking resemblances with her Human Ear Music label-mate Julia Holter, both in the tone of her voice and the fine balance of emotions. But for our money Lucrecia is pursuing a more intriguing path with her inimitably shifty and suggestive sound, from the keening bass shapes, wistful electronics and slow-motion rhythms buoying her sparse, deliberate delivery in 'Esotro', to the wonderfully ambiguous sensation of 'Veta' with its FIS-like white noise rhythms and stately arrangement. Highly recommended.
