Help Me Out

Song: Help Me Out
Artist: Jaffa
Album: Echoes

"Jaffa" is the collaboration between vocalist/composer Christel Meijer and DJ/Producer/Percussionist Phil Martin.  Their debut album "Echoes" is a mix of jazz, electronic music, soulful vocals, and pop.  Their influences include Eurythmics, Roisin Murphy, and Bjork.  That about fits.

I like "Echoes," it has a nice loungy, soulful vibe, that's got a little 90's sound to it as well.  I really dig track "Help Me Out" that reminds me of something but I can't place it. (which seems to be happening more and more.)  Despite that 90's vibe, this is a modern, lazzy, loungy record that's also a bit experimental and quirky.  Held together, no doubt, by Christel's amazing, rich vocals.  Pretty good stuff.
