Recommended first album:
ReStylin' Up: 20 Years (2015)
Who'd have thought that former Not Drowning Waving instigator David Bridie's foray into producing other people's work would have produced such unique results? Stylin' Up is another truly unique album, melding Christine's culturally diverse musical styles with David Bridie's lush strings and cinematic atmospheres. While there's almost always some kind of dance beat present in the songs, this isn't a dance album. It seems almost beyond being placed in a particular genre, and is so full of life and warmth that it's impossible to convey in text the aural delights that are contained within. Certainly "Island Home", a single which preceded the album and which is included on it, is the song of the year. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
