one not on the albums, but very good example. trip hop = minimal breathy vocal and slow bassline, harmony in voice w/o words, drums slow and more faded sounding than other tracks.

looking up the lyrics, I like alot of their first album, with themes of salvation and hope; reads very poetic and only a few words per line.  unabashedly possessed by an emotion you can hear the fragility in the recorded voice; she always sounds about to break but reigning it in as if she had control the whole time.  some songs are more vulnerble than others, all unapologetic and raw.

from the 2nd album, "humming"

Closer
No hesitation
Give me
All that you have

And it's been so long, that I can't explain
And it's been so wrong
Right now, so wrong

Naked
My thoughts are creeping
To late
The show has begun

And it's been so long, that I can't confess
And it's been so wrong
Right now, so wrong

Is it all as it seems
So unresolved, so unredeemed
If I remain, how will I know

And it's been so long, that I can't be sure
And it's been so wrong
Right now, so wrong
