“You’d do much better without me,” Torii Wolf warns amid the shadowy twists and turns of her debut album, Flow Riiot. “Because I am trouble/You know I’m big, big trouble.” Her darkly resigned warnings and plaintive romantic yearnings are intercut with producer DJ Premier’s hip-hop breaks, which add a contrasting layer of urgency to Wolf’s more languid passages. DJ Premier’s febrile production and Wolfe’s arty entreaties on such tracks as “Painkiller” and “Everlasting Peace” make for an interesting combination that has already drawn comparisons to Björk. Kathryn Barr manifests a sense of sumptuous drama in her pop songs under the name Spelles, whereas Seattle duo Ever So Android pump up a heavier sound that places vocalist Hope Simpson’s anguished intensity against the backdrop of Drew Murray’s hard-rock guitar and electronics.
