Ninca Leece There Is No One Else When I Lay Down and Dream
For her debut solo album, Ninca Leece throws small organic touches (think: babbling child) and quirky glitches into a melodic dreamland that alternates between subtle Télépopmusik-era house and bouncy electro-pop. The playful French producer's vocals could easily go bitchy à la Miss Kittin, but tend to end up cheery and sweet, as exemplified by the infectious, funky-bass-inflected single "Sitting on Top of the World." Where Leece opts to croon in her native tongue ("The Beast"), her simple lyrics suddenly become mysterious and sensual. She makes a pretty but unexciting pass through familiar territory with a cover of The Cure's "Love Song" (she should have done it in French!), but provides a compelling mess of her own texture on "Aseptique."
