“Genre-bending” gets thrown around a little too liberally when one or more sounds that normally fit into clean categorizations collide. Some instances, however, genuinely force you to think, “hmmm, that’s odd…not sure I’ve heard this before.”

Nadia Nair’s “Bon Voyage” isn’t exactly unprecedented, but it is an interesting mixture of guitar that boarders on bluesy, crunchy electronic stomp, and symphonic trappings to round out a picture around an arresting, husky voice. It’s not for everyone and it required a few listens before it made much sense to these ears, but it’s an intriguing, grandiose take on a darker corner of pop that cares little for easy classification.

    Great song. In an unrelated note, I am not one of the people who want an advertisement free site. I am thrilled that you guys are attracting big sponsors and can make money doing what you are really great at. Is there any way to turn off ads with sound though? It makes no sense for a music site, especially when they play automatically over the songs that I’m listening to. It’s a minor complaint, but one that makes the site a little less enjoyable.
