7. MUSIC: Anxiety, Ladyhawke; The Absence, Melody Gardot; Our Version of Events, Emile Sandé
Anxiety, the entrancing sophomore album, from electro-rocker Ladyhawke, includes the single “Black, White, and Blue.” Gentle bossa nova beats complement Gardot’s sultry vocals on the chanteuse’s third album, The Absence. On Sandé’s debut, Our Version of Events, her spectacular pipes and the raw emotion of her lyrics mark her arrival as an important new vocalist.
