Brenna Lowrie – The Body Electric

This album is deceptive. What initially appears as a modest little indie-folk record actually packs away a whole treasure chest of sounds, textures and elements. In chemistry, they would call this a compound record. Smooth pop hooks are followed by rough, almost atonal passages; up-front dry acoustic scraping sits alongside distant, expansive, reverb. Clean folk tones, abrasive, rock distortion. This album has a lot going on, and a confident and competent pop sensibility tying it all together. This is one that rewards listens and re-listens with dividends.
