Spinnanes girl collaborates w/ Tortise guy et al. so its all 60’s 70’s smarmy retro Rhodes, Wurlitzer, vibes, and super slick studio tricks, production. Dark ballads w/ post-rock-isms. Gates has a rather sultrey voice that sounds low no matter how high her notes. Excellent stuff when the Tortise hand isn’t too heavy. All mysterious and pretty and good.

1) mid-slow swingy loungy w/ retro Rhodes sound, dark, sultry
2) super slick electro beats w/ vibes and retro sound, nice voc melodies
3) minimal wafting electronics w/ slow phrased vocs and guit
4) upbeat pop beat and feel near trip hop
5) sparser feel, almost straight pop despite interesting production and efx, pretty
6) slow phrased Low-like vocs, guit, bowed bass, no drums
7) slow solo acoustic guit +vocs, electronics, etc enter slowly, minimally
