Indian Summer by Monica Lionheart
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Nacional Records
Monica Lionheart couldn't have picked a more evocative title for her solo debut. Everything on Indian Summer sounds as if it were basking in the golden, stolen sunlight of a late afternoon during summer's last gasp. Much of that vibe comes from the fact that the Pacha Massive singer's vocals were cut with a fuzzier, more cottony effect than the slightly crisper electro-acoustic beats. But Lionheart also chooses a wide range of lazy, hazy styles to steep each track in: "Air and Sea" sleepily nods to alt-country, "Relampago" gets trip-hoppy and the epically gorgeous "Sombras" is a wee bit bossa.
