Esthero - We R in Need of a Musical Revolution
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Esthero - We R in Need of a Musical RevolutionIt’s been seven long years since Esthero, born Jen-Bea Englishman, released her formidable debut Breath from Another. Now, the trip-hoppy electronic pop singer whets her fans’ appetites with this soulful six-song teaser from her forthcoming followup. Pairings with Sean Lennon on the sunny “Everyday is a Holiday (With You)” and rapper Cee-Lo on the seductive gem “Gone” would, in an ideal world, land Esthero on radio or MTV, while the title track is a tuneful explanation of why that’s unlikely to happen.
