Minneapolis' Poliça has easily made the most viable use yet of Auto-Tune; you almost don't notice it—much less curse its presence—until you're already sufficiently rapt by vocalist Channy Leaneagh's seeming spectrality. Produced by Gayngs' Ryan Olson and mixed by Spoon's Jim Eno, the band's debut, Give You the Ghost, is an electronic reconstruction of rhythm and blues—with emphasis on the rhythm—merged with progressive rock sensibilities, though that seems too succinct to express the full range of music being made here. Regardless, there are few moments as smooth and enlivening as those first on "I See My Mother" or "Wandering Star," when that beat drops and Leaneagh's voice—equal parts metallic and angelic—soars in. There is no doubt that this album is one of the best of the year thus far. RAQUEL NASSER
