FKA Twigs. Strange name. Great sound. Post-dubstep (take the good things about dubstep, turn the volume down, slow or eliminate the “whoomp,” tell the boys to sit down and unclinch their fists and add lyrics with beauty).

She’s on the label Young Turks, (which is a name referring to a Turkish national reform party, but morphed into meaning a young person with new ideas and history lesson, history lesson, history lesson etc.) home to The XX, SBTRKT and other forwarding-thinking artists.
