Product Description

Following on from Final Fantasy's recent LP 'He Poos Clouds', Tomlab seem to have hit something of a rich aural seam judging by the quality on show throughout Niobe's fourth album 'White Hats'. The recording appellation of Yvonne Cornelius, Niobe was the subject of a Greek myth where she got on the wrong side of Zeus following some bragging issues - with 'White Hats' the kind of lambent record that could snag his attention all over again... Blessed with a larynx that can legitimately claim the 'honey' adjective, Niobe's vocal style flirts with that of Hanne Hukkelberg and Dani Siciliano; combining a fragility and soulful power that manages to coexist with neither canceling the other out. The kind of record that sounds as if it was recorded in a thick and satisfying fog, 'White Hats' draws on a collage of influences to inform its rich palate - with the likes of 'Cool Alpine' effortlessly combining Phil Spector and 1960's disco-funk one minute, before we're hit in the gut with some gospel-fed hip-hop on 'Up Hill And Down Dale' the next. Blessed with a cohesion that is often lost on such genre-fluid records, other highlights include the title track's alpine lullaby (by way of the mid-west...), the ambient frippery of 'Surround Your Hoover', and the soul-pocked pop of opening track 'Give All To Love'. White hot!
