A giddy LP from former Ghostface Killah and Ali Shaheed Muhammad collaborator Adrian Younge here. Voices Of Gemma is something of an iron fist in a velvet glove. These ten tracks will often lull you in with gorgeous, lilting tunes lifted straight from the David Axelrod songbook before hitting you with a sharp left hook. It could be an unsettling lyric, an incongruous bass lick or simply the single appearance of a male vocal after a record of head-voice female parts, but these intrusions destabilise the fantastical world that Younge otherwise sets up with such meticulous care. This is a louche, dreamy and uncanny listen.
