Kali Uchis, 'Isolation'
We Say: The music Kali Uchis summons on this fascinating debut album doesn't refer to a particular place or time. Like Beck or Outkast, she's a pop weirdo who works grooves that seem vintage and futuristic at the same moment. She grabs splashes of funk, bossa, reggaeton and soul and blankets them with a sunbaked, psychedelic wooziness. Her specialty is flashbacks, not throwbacks. Blink and the picture changes again. J.L.
