Did Portishead and Metric have a baby? The Slowest Curve, a new four song EP from Adena Atkins and producer Jay Pinto, make me wonder. Recorded in Seattle, Adena’s solo debut features a sparse soundtrack, upfront vocals, and an array of instruments. She emulates female vocal greats such as Tori Amos and Beth Gibbons while remaining true to her own sound and song writing. The compositions are entirely unique, quite refreshing, and minimal. Her songs seem to paint themselves as they go, guided by her voice and lyrics. They are spontaneous and new upon each listen. With such an interesting debut it will be exciting to see what she comes up with next. The Slowest Curve is available on iTunes for only $3.96 here.
