Hudson K

Hudson K’s new album Shine is a more mature version of what Christina Horn calls “anti-pop,” keyboard-driven rock like that on the band’s 2007 EP Safety Line. The recording of the album took more than a year, and that effort and attention is evident in the music. Shine draws on classic rock and some great women of ’90s indie music like PJ Harvey and Tori Amos, as well as Bach and Beethoven. The album’s synthesizers, vintage electric pianos, and multi-faceted percussion combine to make a dusky and soulful sound, and Horn’s expressive voice stays strong through the album’s fluttering, intricate piano, solid synths, Wurlitzer, and more. (Janet Jay)
