EVY JANE | Sayso
Evy Jane’s new track, “Sayso”, is one of two songs on a self-titled EP/12-inch, which also features two remixes to go along with each of the originals. It’s an experimental bit of electronic soul, melting genres and aquatic sounds into a syrup-thick density of warped grooves, dub-beats, and lush lyricism with a seriously-seductive narcotized flow. There’s also a new video for “Sayso”, which you can watch here at vimeo or to the right of this blog in the vodpod widget. The second track, “Ohso”, is heavier and even more dense, using blips, a thumping club bass beat, and an R&B lead vocal that falls away into quieter moments. There’s a hazy, slow-tempo feel like Meshell Ndegeocello’s “Come Smoke My Herb”, or Erykah Badu’s more spaced-out efforts. Evy Jane is the experimental R&B project of Vancouver-based musicians Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein. Listen to the duo at bandcamp, or follow them at tumblr. — David D. Robbins Jr.
