Hungry Lucy – Apparitions

Recently I received an advance promo copy of this debut album from US band Hungry Lucy. With such a bandname you can expect anything, but it turned out that this band has a rather pleasant sound, somewhere between gothic, pop and triphop.

I think that fans of the Projekt label and “Heavenly Voices”, but also Portishead and Massive Attack will like this release. The atmosphere is laid-back and a bit melancholic (but never very dark), it’s ideal music for a sunday afternoon lounge, although some tunes are rather danceable. The female voice sounds nice and the electronica sophisticated. My favourite song is the cover “Blue Dress”, originally released by Depeche Mode on their Violator album.
