This week has been a bit of a loss for music, however, there is a shining light at the end of the tunnel and it comes in the form of Sevda Alizadeh (i.e. Sevdaliza) and her sophomore LP Shabrang. The Iranian born, Netherlands living artist takes every bit of artistic liberty FKA Twigs uses, but mixes it with the ambiance and subtleness of James Blake, while also exploring chamber pop and darkwave. For one whole hour, you will be taken through the haunting yet complex poetic nature that this album brings. These types of lyrics are ones that Ph.D.?s in English decode, and I love every second of it. Every track is so brilliantly recorded, executed, and performed, that it makes me feel like I am at one of the greatest plays of all time. The smallest drawback is that the closing track is not as strong as the rest of the album, otherwise this is a nearly flawless release.
