Album Stream: Polica - Shulamith


In a year that just keeps getting better and better for music, the Minneapolis band Polica's sophomore record Shulamith has remained near the top of our most-anticipated list since we knew it existed - now, you can stream the album courtesy NPR a week in advance of its October 22 release. It's an excellent record - frontwoman Channy Leaneagh's vocals toe the line between demon-summoning and seductive, here and there eerily edited until they sound like incantations; they preside over her band's massive percussion and shimmery, film-noir synths. Our first listen favorite is probably "Vegas," but Channy's duet with Justin Vernon on "Tiff" is the stuff of dreams. Check it out.
