Reseña de álbum

Emiliana Torrini revisits her relationship with producer Dan Carney on Me and Armini, which mixes fingerplucked folk with touches of jazz, dancehall, electronica, and pop. Splitting the difference between the intimate acoustics of 2005's Fisherman's Woman and the trip-hop experiments of Love in the Time of Science, Me and Armini finds room for Torrini to flex all of her musical muscles. She's a sultry mistress during "Gun," where she peppers the verses with blasts of hot breath cloaked in echo. It's a surprisingly sexy performance — almost feline, not unlike something by the Kills — with a muted guitar riff that threatens to explode but stubbornly keeps its composure. Elsewhere, Torrini tones down the heat in favor of winsome pop, mimicking a percussive instrument on "Jungle Drum" and filling "Big Jumps" with strings of endearing doop-de-doop vocals. Several songs also cement her musical connection to Björk — an easy link to make, perhaps, given the women's shared Icelandic heritage, but a factual one nevertheless — and tunes like "Birds" and "Heard It All Before" show that both singers employ similar vocal ticks. Elsewhere, Torrini's material evokes the jazzy cadence of Inara George or even the reggae-tinged swagger of Lily Allen, particularly on the album's breezy title track. Yet comparisons to other artists don't quite do Emiliana Torrini justice, as she's carved out her own sonic space over the course of several albums. With its wide array of genres — all executed with earnestness and confidence — Me and Armini emerges as an album suitable for bookworms and beach bunnies, homebodies and world travelers, dancers and wallflowers. Highly recommended.

My Fingertips Go 'Round and...

This is a great album. On the surface it is light and easy, but after a couple of listens it becomes a mot more dense and complex. "Dead Duck" is my fave, though there are many other great songs here. The production is top-notch. Ms. Torrini has a great voice and interpretive skills, playing with phrases wonderfully. Well worth the listen. Grade A stuff. I want to see her first album, "Love In the Time Of Science" (prod. by R.Orzabal from Tears for Fears), available here. It's a fantastic record.

Good Album

Emiliana Torrini nevers stops to amaze me. This album is so soothing and just as good as her last one. Stand out songs to me are: 'Me and Armini' and 'Birds'. Good album.

So pleasing to listen to her voice

Emiliana Torrini has a voice that can make the birds sing. Just as one drinks water only when thirsty, you listen to Ms. Torrini only when there is time to really listen to her voice and message. She sings with a sort of quasi sigh that sounds a little bit lazy but in an instant can turn somewhat joyful and almost celebratory. If you are inclined to cross the line into electronic, listen to her vocals on 'Until the Morning' on Thievery Corporation's 'Babylon Rewound'. By the way Jud, I'd like to recommend that you no longer review albums. You traveled all the way to Japan for...what? You're a jackass.

An Icelandic singer/songwriter whose music embraces elements of folk, electronica, pop/rock, and trip-hop, Emiliana Torrini has earned favorable comparisons to such vocally gifted artists as Beth Hirsch, Kirsty Hawkshaw, and Björk. Torrini was raised in Kópavogur, where she worked at her father's Italian restaurant and attended opera school as a teenager. After releasing three albums in her native Iceland (Spoon, Crouçie D'où Là, and Merman), she joined forces with Tears for Fears' Roland Orzabal...
