10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

English artist FKA twigs forges sensual, textured soundscapes from breath and pulse. Her full-length debut suggests a host of influences—dusky late-’90s trip-hop acts like Lamb; the flutter and gasp of vocalists like Tori Amos and Kate Bush; the stuttering atmospherics of Jamie xx—but vastly exceeds the sum of those parts. Twigs flits from a wraithlike whisper-yelp (“Lights On”) to an after-party chill-out (“Two Weeks”) with ease and grace, creating something enthrallingly her own.
