Sami Akbari might be setting the bar high, but why not? This collection moves from the breezy ‘60s sounds recently revisited by the likes of Saturday Looks Good to Me and She & Him to more contemporary bits that call to mind Feist and Frente. Sami’s not afraid to add a little grit to her sugar, as she demonstrates on tracks such as “Making Eyes” and “Yesteryear” (which alternates between futuristic and retro, and is thus positively must-hear material). This collection proves never less than entertaining and never less than the best of what Akbari has to offer. A real artist to watch for in this new year.
