Anomie Bell

Add Date: October 28

Artist: Anomie Bell

Album: Sleeping Patterns

Label: Self-released

Genre: Trip-hop, electronica

Comments: Five words, two of them strung together by a hyphen: Seattle female trip-hop artist. What'll they think of next? Luckily, Anomie Bell has a knack for groove that translates well on this, her debut album. Her lyrics speak of politics, societal ills, consumerism, and everything else you might expect from an Orwellian protagonist. But her music is slow and entrancing, often clouding the lyrics. Sort of reminds me of Zero 7 or Fourtet. Check out "American View."
