Album Review: Alex Winston - Sister Wife (Heavy Roc)
Alluring and cute, but blending in quickly with the beige alternative pop wallpaper
[b]‘Locomotive’[/b]’s Bush-esque coos exhibit a strangely West Country child-woman voice, while the title track has a sedated [a]Of Montreal[/a]-by-way-of-[b]Marina[/b] glam-pop hip-hop shuffle, and [b]‘Don’t Care Anything’[/b] comes on like a great lost Tanya Donelly track.
It’s charming, but nothing more than background. Whether she will push into more courageous territory still or plummet into blandness remains to be seen.
