The tunes don't hit you, they crawl under the skin. The production is simple but all in how they use their influences - Ornette Coleman - if he could play guitar, The Aphex Twin if he could play bass, Sandy Denny is she was Dusty Springfield - that makes this interesting. Is this a new kind of POP? Lucida - we don't know her last name - sings like an angel. She gets to the soul of these songs and gives them life. As for the musicians - by way of the UK (David) and Flint, MI (Jerry) - they spent their youth listening to as much stuff as possible and then turned that into their own kind of noise.
They started The Flexibles - punk/funk Detroit at it's finest - and ended up at Lucida. It's latin for light you know? So what do you get? You get "up off the floor" dance songs like "Groove Love"; you get 'Being Digital' - have you ever laid on the grass and looked at the stars? This is what that sounds like. You get her duet with David-Gwyn Jones from The Davids on "Once in your life"; you get the space-folk music of "different world". You get alot. Read more on Last.fm.
