You Can Call Me

Jessy Lanza “5785021″

Jessy Lanza’s debut album Pull My Hair Back is the kind of excellent record that can be easy to ignore – it’s extremely low key and a bit chilly, and though it’s full of very pleasing melodic parts, it doesn’t really cross over into the realm of “catchy.” Most of it feels like a very aloof late ’90s/early ’00s R&B record, with Lanza singing over tracks by the Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan that are always moving, but feel as though they progress in slow motion. “5785021″ is particularly great – she’s basically imploring someone to call her, and she shifts between being sweet, funny, and a little desperate in a way that feels entirely natural.

Buy it from Amazon.
