L'Rain, the one-woman project of New York's keyboardist Taja Cheek,
concocted dense jazz-infused dance-pop on the mini-album
The way Heavy fuses dense instrumental jam and ethereal vocals is
reminiscent of the
Cocteau Twins' dream-pop
except that the song ends with
lamentations over gentle, pastoral, country fingerpicking.
A Toes weds that dream-pop with a nostalgic aria and beat from the
era of the "ye-ye girls".
One moment she's crooning like a seasoned lounge singer
against a complex syncopated rhythm and a sax-driven counterpoint
(Stay Go) and the next moment she is intoning an
lullaby over a fast industrial beat (Bat).
The seven-minute Which Fork is an organic creature
that grows from lo-fi bedroom pop to a full-fledged dance-pop ballad and
then to a feverish Caribbean-jazz sarabande.
