EDITORS’ NOTES

China Moses has carved out a career with distinctive style: She’s done Disney voiceovers, hosted French MTV, and released a fiery full-length dedication to Dinah Washington. But the commanding, groove-oriented soul-jazz of Nightintales is in her sweet spot—channeling Dinah’s explosive emotion into a heady set of vintage R&B and cabaret sass. Uptempo tracks like “Watch Out” and “Running” are attitude-packed showpieces for her huge voice, but she’s lethal on the standout ballad “Whatever.” Still, Nighintales’ best moment is when Moses lets loose over the stuttering beat of “Hungover.”
