Debut album released by 4AD. Put this one in your bag with Fever Ray, Grimes, FKA Twigs, Youth Lagoon, and maybe Sonic Youth. Dusty and warbled near psychedelic electronic production have a post punk charge, a dash of krautrock, and a message of self identity and substance. Empowering, meticulous, as well as damn good fun.

Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido. Don’t become Dido

That was my plea after hearing 21 year old Londoner Hannah Rodgers debut EP last year and by the sounds of the second track here 'Toes' she hasn't. Dido would never do anything like this. It's a slab of lop-sided electronica with vocals beamed in from several galaxies, all at once - all curling round each other. Luckily Pixx is heading down the path marked St Vincent on a lot of this bold debut album. It showcases a set of songs that a both listenable but oddball. The perfect combination, her voice is pitchshifted all over the place and is at it's best on 'Romance' which sounds like what Kate Bush might come up with if she was born in the '90s. It's thick and pudgy electronic pop with vocals wibbling and trailing off like vapour tries.  

I like her madcap vocals but when she sings normally she has a great husky voice which she uses on 'Telescreen' she frets about social media in sweet voice over dark tangled '80s guitars. There's a few worrying bits 'Everything Is Weird In America' is the least weird track here and seems to be an attempt at jaunty joviality which falls a bit flat. She's better when weird - early single 'Baboo' again showcases that way of being both enjoyable and odd. It's mood shifts are perplexing but just when you think she's got lost it regains its composure to flap into a joyous chorus.

It's good but she has to stick with this originality and even pursue it further. She could easily be smoothed out into another slightly 'kookie' singer songwriter in the name of selling actual records and that would be awful.
