About this album

SHE - a female trip-hop experience
by Various Artists (Trip-Hop)

It’s time to chill out! Some of the most successful electronica bands today are united on this down tempo compilation. The unique selection of female vocalists gives this collection its special flavor. The sensitive and expressive voices of Julee Cruise with Hybrid, Bronagh Slevin with Crustation, Nicola Hitchcock of Mandalay, Margaret Murphy Fiedler from Laika, Lore and many others make this experience a must for every fan of trip-hop.

“ SHE IS AN ELEGANTLY CRAFTED COLLECTION OF FEMME FATALES…”

If Beth Gibbons and Kelli Ali are the only female singers that come to mind when thinking about
electronic bands, prepare to be schooled. She is an elegantly crafted collection of femme fatales
swimming in lush vocals and downtempo sexiness. The smooth waves of Starseeds’s “Parallel Life”
and melancholic guitar cries of The Dreaming’s “Thank You” stretch far from conventional chorus
lines of Dido’s smash hits. Add the lilting motifs of Nicola Hitchcock (Mandalay) and
Louise Rhodes (Lamb) insistent howls and the picture is complete. Suggestion: listen with
a nice martini in hand and a slow sunset in view.
