Album of the week: AlunaGeorge's Body Talk
AlunaGeorge popped up on my radar a little over a year ago. The duo seduced right out of the gate with it's trip-hop revival "You Know You Like It." It's been a long, hungry wait for a full-length debut. In the interim, Aluna lent her jazzy, girlish voice to Disclosure's club anthem "White Noise," only raising the anticipation.
Tomorrow, Body Talk, the London act's debut, sees release in the U.S. Hooray! Yeah, a lot of it is immaculately constructed hotel soul suited for South Beach boutiques, but the clean, relaxed perfectionism is welcome relief from the haze of chillwave. Listen to it and read a quick interview the two did with Time Out. Now excuse me while I go dig up my Moloko, Mono and Sneaker Pimps CDs.
