Alice Russell My Favourite Letters
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Tru Thoughts
Beyond the digital funk, the dance-jazz sheen, the spacey Minnie Ripperton-isms, there‘s something truly unique going on Alice Russell‘s TM Juke-produced sophomore album. My Favourite Letters lives up to the rep Russell‘s built on her own, and singing with the likes of Quantic. But it also boasts its own neo-psych-soul tip-offs: swirling artwork, trippy titles ("Munkaroo," "Mirror Mirror On the Wolf"). Russell‘s pipes are as achingly bold and naked as ever; Juke‘s got all the muted trumpets, warped Afro basslines and Monk-ish chords to back up his subtly booming beats. Not the swaggering gestalt they‘re headed towards, but closer than most will ever come.
