Artist: Hannah McKittrick
Style: Moonlight jazz with vocals
Favorite Track: “Theatre of Gesture”
Music from: Melbourne, Australia
What I like about it: This is moody music through and through, and I like how it reveals streaks of lighthearted cheerfulness as an appealing bit of contrast. I like how Hannah McKittrick’s vocals come heavy with the drama, but by delivering them with restraint, the music is more hypnotic burning embers than a wild conflagration. I like how the ensemble unfolds its lyricism in a way that honors the vocals instead of simply existing at the vocals’ behest.
Your album personnel: Hannah McKittrick (vocals), Max Slorach (saxophones), Theo Carbo (guitar), Nat Bartsch (piano), Noah Hutchinson (bass, synth) and Ollie Cox (drums, percussion).
