On Rotation: Rhye – ‘Woman’

Rhye’s debut album, Woman, is a breathtaking collection. Not quite a dance record, not quite minimalist R&B, it melds the romance of bedroom soul with chamber-pop sophistication. It sounds a bit like Owen Pallett making a Sade record; or, for that matter, like the silk sheets sequel to the bridge of Usher’s “Climax.” It’s out today on Republic Records. (Buy)
