Comparisons:

Hard to say: she's often compared to other pop/rock R&B and rap-influence pop performers.

Comments:

Rap/jazz/classical/ atmospheric/pop brilliance. I absolutely adore Homebrew. you should all rush out and buy Neneh Cherry's Homebrew, which is brilliant. (burka@jeffrey.net)

Absolutely, I agree. (vickie@enteract.com)

An excellent choice! "Trout" is one of my all-time favorite songs, and "Buddy X" is soooo smooth. (colford@chlotrudis.org)

"Trout" is wonderful. (relph@presto.ig.com)

Homebrew is a lovely album, so good it could be eaten, as we say here in Norway. Elaborately amateurish, brilliant mix of music, rhythm and rap. One of the best CDs of the year. (kjetilho@ifi.uio.no)

Availability:

Wide

Ecto priority:

Highly recommended

Kieran Hebden

Comments:

really really raw and excellent, and definitely ecto-friendly. (timjy@sbcglobal.net)

Lots of raves for this on the ecto mailing list. I'm not so sure I agree when it comes to the whole album; it feels much too unfinished for me but I love some of the songs. Rating: 46/100. Best tracks: "Dossier," "Across the Water." (raschee@gmail.com)
