The snow is falling heavily here in the midwest. Bone-chilling gusts of wind are blasting across parking lots and through the cracks between office buildings all across the region. It’s a perfect day to be indoors, curled up in front of the fireplace, with this gorgeous debut album from L.A. duo Rhye softly playing in the background.
Like an homage to Sade’s entire catalogue Woman is sensual, seductive and engaging. It seamlessly pairs smooth, alluring vocals with rich, elegant musical character, a winning combination readily apparent in their early singles, “Open” and “The Fall.” Woman isn’t officially out until next Tuesday, March 4th, but Pitchfork is offering up an advance stream of the entire album at their site. Grab a mug of hot cocoa and hit the jump below to give it a spin.
