Blue Hawaii: Untogether
Buy! - (Arbutus)
The debut full-length album from this Toronto-based boyfriend/girlfriend duo – Raphaelle Standel-Preston (also a member of BRAIDS) and Alexander Cowan – is a stunning set of sexy, emotional, soulful electronic/pop that marries hypnotic production full of warm synths, romantic low-end textures, and masterfully manipulated vocal samples with Raphaelle's beautiful voice and ethereal harmonies. While there's traces of Björk, Grimes, Julianna Barwick, and Glasser throughout, Untogether is a thoroughly unique, immersive, rewarding listen start-to-finish. 2/1/2013 - Alex
