True Stories Crazy Girls
- Words: Tomas
- Label: Non-Stop
Here's my pick of the issue-a leftfield pop EP that defies categories but seamlessly blends Phoebe Tolmer's (Nouvelle Vague) emotive vocals with Nick "Boxsaga" Phillips' nervous beats. Like the off-kilter balladry of Moloko, Tolmer weaves a mysterious, disjointed narration through foggy, nocturnal beats. Spektrum's uptempo mix filters and flings the vocals too and fro in a frothy electrodisco mix. Essential.
