When you're certain about something you stop being curious. And when you truly pay attention even the familiar becomes new again. It's this sense of discovery that fills Devotion, produced by Tirzah and her longtime friend and collaborator Mica Levi. The duo explore and redraw the frames of R&B and pop with playful precision. Each of the sounds on this minimalist collection are used for maximum impact: cautiousness, confidence, strength and forgiveness all told in unsteady snare snaps, suspended piano loops, subtle synths and vocal refrains. If we can be certain of anything it's that Tirzah has made one of the most quietly compelling debut albums of the year.
