♫♪  Madam West - Loves You

Madam West characterize themselves as “misanthropic plastic neosoul pop,” perhaps sarcastically, though, because if true, it could only be in the best possible way. Channeling everyone from Frente! to 4AD black sheep Tindersticks, (though the list of greats could go on), the four piece make up for a formidable force in that all-too-often hard-to-achieve sincere pop songwriting. Likewise, they’re nothing if not a welcome fresh musical voice in the local Bushwick/larger Brooklyn scene, with their post-Baroque pop looking back at early 90s grunge pop sound. Have a listen, your loss otherwise.
