Polica ‘Shulamith’ Review

On some level, Poliça – led by singer Channy Leaneagh and producer Ryan Olson – couldn’t sound more like they were from Minneapolis. On their second album, the followup to 2012’s buzzy Give You the Ghost, these kids blend distant, white-on-white melodic minimalism with early-Prince electro burp-‘n-grind. Leaneagh gets into bad love on the surprisingly rock “Very Cruel” and complicated love on the thunderous “Matty,” while, on “Tiff,” Bon Iver main man/fellow Midwesterner/Kanye collaborator Justin Vernon shows up to backstop lines like “Have the bullet/ He has the gun.” Apparently, America’s Portishead can be found skinny-dipping in Lake Minnetonka.
