12 Songs, 50 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

If Shulamith proves anything, it’s that the Minneapolis group's sudden success is no fluke. Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon once famously said that POLIÇA was the best band he ever heard, and he sings along to the mysterious lyrics of “Tiff.” The ambling percussion of “I Need $” shares the brio and aesthetic of hip-hop as Channy Leaneagh glides and freestyles over the song’s icy plains. Her haunting processed vocals meld with the echoing effect of two drum kits, a super-funky bass guitar, and the trip-hoppy exhalations of an alien synthesizer. It all makes a potent statement: to be a modern creature is to reside in the surreal space between the digital and the organic.

SAY WHAT?

Though I have little clue as to what the hell she is singing about, there is no denying that the beats are right on the money.

I've looked for music that's similar to Polica's, but the thing is that NOTHING is similar to Polica. This band is truly something special. All of their songs have a dreamy feel to them. Polica is by far my favorite band, and I think they deserve a lot more attention.

Awesome!

These cats managed to put a sick album twice in a row!
