Straight out of Brooklyn comes Suisse Modular - an ensemble featuring Sandrine Ligabue''s haunting vocals, Summer Kelly''s on-time programming, Grant
Matthew Smith''s smooth bass, and Christian "Wicked" Wicht''s one-of-a-kind mix.
The group has released a five-track EP, "Fly Me to the Lunar," that scorches the talents of all the members into a smoldering mold of pacifying trip-hop that will tickle fans shades of pink.
The album, sang both in English and French, isn''t far from the likes of Portishead, and Ligabue''s vocals are allusive of Sarah McLachlan''s, but one thing''s for sure - why couldn''t this disc have been longer in length?
This is one of those EPs that''s over too quickly, though it lends itself well to "repeat" button use. Suisse Modular tackle downbeat trip-hop in the method of Faithless -- airy female vocals, orchestral samples and found loops, layered atop drum machines and the occasional keyboard arpeggio. This ear candy is both safe and satisfying. Each track is a welcome diversion that momentarily soaks up the spotlight before drifting off into the ether. I''ve spun it four times already and it still hasn''t sunk in.
