OIL OF EV­ERY PEARL’S UN-IN­SIDES (MSMSMSM/ FU­TURE CLAS­SIC/ TRANS­GRES­SIVE) This Scot­tish pro­ducer-singer, born So­phie Xeon, is known for her as­so­ci­a­tion with the PC Mu­sic la­bel, as well as for cre­at­ing avant-pop songs that sound like deeply dis­ori­ent­ing dis­patches from an­other planet. Oil, her de­but solo ef­fort, is fre­quently beau­ti­ful—strange and woozy. High­lights in­clude the ob­ses­sive “In­fat­u­a­tion” and the cel­e­bra­tory an­them “Im­ma­te­rial,” a re­flec­tion on gen­der dys­pho­ria that is an in­stant dance-floor clas­sic but would work equally well as a grad­u­ate dis­ser­ta­tion.
