Album Review
Mr. Bones
Reviewed 2019-06-29
Looking for a truly unique mash-up of synth, hip-hop, americana and R&B? Give Ms. Gordon a spin. In Pure, she takes a break from working with the likes of likes of Beyonce and J Lo to create an emotional release the explores her tumultuous youth raising her siblings due to an absent father and a religious zealot mother. Sonically it is an enchanting mix of R&B, hip-hop and ‘black indie’ that is powered by driving bass lines and soaring synths. The piece de resistance though is her captivating voice and glass shattering high notes. Give her a spin and be sure to turn the volume up to 11.

RIYL: Minnie Ripperton, Grace Jones, Tracy Chapman
