On her Facebook profile, musician Jessie Evans lists her genre as "space vamp." Trust Facebook genre fields at your own risk, but in this case, that's spot-on. The US-born, Berlin-based Evans seems like she dropped onto Earth from another planet, all angles and eyeliners and gorgeously garish glitterbomb outfits that look like a cross between a futuristic flapper dress and the most fabulous marching band uniform ever. Then there's Evans' music, an idiosyncratic mix of slinky electro-pop, with vibrant horns and global sounds befitting its maker's worldly aesthetic. The result—heard all over her new album, Glittermine—is something like M.I.A., Beats Antique, and Goat, jamming in a sweaty apartment above a European disco as the pulse of cosmopolitan cool pumps out the window and floats off into the crackling night air.
