Body Music

By closing their debut with a cover of "This Is How We Do It," Montell Jordan's mid-Nineties New Jack Swing romp, AlunaGeorge hand listeners a parting thought: For almost 20 years, R&B has been inseparable from electronic music. While Aluna Francis sings tart kiss-offs to foolish exes, producer George Reid keeps the digital activity as stylish and minimalist as a Helmut Lang showroom. He builds "Attracting Flies" around a wobbly synth hook and shifting percussion, as Francis coolly smacks down a bullshitter by using text-message shorthand: B.A.B. Only in London could a Bad Ass Bitch be this elegant and relaxed.
