Orenda Fink and Maria Taylor have pretty voices. Their albums play to their strength, surrounding them with soft textures. Their gently undulating sound follows a trail blazed more artfully by the Cocteau Twins. The synthetic beats undergirding their latest, Drawing Down the Moon, have the shallow canned feel of hip-pop (think, sadly, Mike Posner), though it still manages plenty of warmth. But that can't distract from empty sophistry like "you can go ... but don't leave my mind," evincing heartbreak-porn getting by on emotional resonance without any lyrical or mental muscle. With James Husband and Dead Fingers. —Chris Parker
