Bobby Reed is from Washington, DC and released a small handful of singers before hooking up with the amazing Van McCoy for this sublime release. Very little is known about him, although he released at least one more 45 after this one.

Polica

Form
Give You the Ghost 2012 via Totally Gross National Product/Mom + Pop
a note about this track

Polica's sound is crisp, minimalist and mesmerizing. Singer Channy Leaneagh plays her voice like an instrument, using AutoTune both in the studio and at live shows to manipulate her vocals. Against the sliding violins, saxophone solos, relaxed bass and dueling drums of Polica, it's hard to believe that before this, Leaneagh sang folk music for six years in her previous band, Roma di Luna. Polica's fusion of jazz, blues and electronica seems ideal for Leaneagh's vocals and lyrics, which combine to produce a chilling effect. Produced by Ryan Olson of Gayngs and mixed by Jim Eno of Spoon, Polica's forthcoming Give You the Ghost is already one of 2012's most hotly anticipated debuts.
