GABy HER­NAN­DEz

Spirit Re­flec­tion 8/10

UNCUT - - New Albums I’m New Here - Deliri­ous samba-elec­tron­ica from los An­ge­les MARK BENT­lEy

This is a hol­i­day fling of a record. Chilled and tempt­ing as a beach­side mo­jito – and just as po­tent – Gaby Her­nan­dez’s third solo ef­fort blends folk, jazz, Cubano beats, on-the­breeze melodies and the sway­ing pulse of late-night elec­tron­ica. Spirit Re­flec­tion’s fea­tured mu­si­cians in­clude Ka­masi Washington, Dexter Story and Ninja Tune artist Carlos Niño, and this multi-tex­tured al­bum de­mands con­sump­tion in one long, uninterrupted ses­sion. “En­tranced” en­trances, “Messy Love” drifts se­duc­tively, while “My Baobab Tree” is a sun-baked ear-worm.
