Album Review

An album title like Urban Angel might lead you to expect a smooth and silky R&B diva, but what you get on the solo debut by Daughter Darling alumna Natalie Walker is actually something more along the lines of a less downtown Syd Straw, or maybe a less British Portishead. The production team of Stur creates arrangements for Walker that manage to give equal weight to her sweet, clear voice and their backing tracks, tracks that are funky and elegant at the same time. The mood is generally kind of glum, but not always completely pessimistic: the title track is sad and lovely, while "Rest Easy" picks up the tempo a little bit while keeping the mood quite subdued. "No One Elsa" combines faintly glitchy beats with a gossamer arrangement of harp, piano, strings and breathy backing vocals to very nice effect, and "Quicksand" incorporates what almost sound like Fripp-ertronic-style guitars. Near the end, on the beautiful "Not the End," Walker's sadness comes with a certain degree of optimism as she gently encourages a downcast friend. Overall, this is a very impressive debut from a major talent. Highly recommended.

Would also recommend checking out the remixes on the Quicksand EP. Natalie is well worth a listen if you fancy something a bit off the well beaten path.

superb and sublime

absolutely stunning sound, would call it electronic either.. give it a listen, at first glance seems like all other artists in this genre but her voice and use of that very clear talents shines throuhg and gives the album that cutting edge.. brilliant

Entitled Urban Angel, the album was produced by the duo Stuhr (Dan Chen and Nate Greenberg), and made minor waves commercially, but it was a pair of songs from the full-length that helped to bolster Walker's career, one of which —...
