Dawn Richard, “Re­demp­tion”

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE -

Dawn Richard used to be in pop vo­cal group Dan­ity Kane, but the mu­sic she’s made on her three lat­est solo al­bums flirts with the avant-garde. “Re­demp­tion” di­als down the beats-per-minute to strike a more re­flec­tive tone. Even opener “Love Un­der Lights,” which ges­tures to­ward the kind of glo-stick bom­bast typ­i­cal of EDM raves, be­comes some­thing else. A few songs fail to blos­som be­yond an ini­tial in­trigu­ing burst of color. But the al­bum’s am­bi­tions re­ward con­tin­u­ous lis­ten­ing. —Greg Kot, Chicago Tri­bune
