Maayan Nidam Nightlong

  • Words: Chris Sabbath
  • Label: Powershovelaudio
  • XLR8R Rating: 7/10

Berlin beauty Maayan Nidam of Miss Fitz and Spunky Brewster notoriety swan dives into the world of Cuban cadence and rhythm and makes quite a splash on her debut full-length, Nightlong, impregnating her electronic foray with a tropical touch. The album kicks off with a little vamped-up lounge number titled “Dime Si Eres Tu”—it’s got the ambience of a Twin Peaks episode with some brass and Spanish vocals added to the mix. Follow-up tracks like “Soltando Chispa” and “Tengo” are somewhat more in line with Nidam’s usual output, as both parade a hash of synths and ethnic sounds to a minimal thud. A decent selection if your taste buds are craving a trip near the equator.
