It’s been a few months since Seattle’s Catherine Harris-White, better known as SassyBlack, dropped her second solo album, New Black Swing. A play on the new jack swing sound popularized in the late ’80s and early ’90s, New Black Swing finds the psychedelic soul songwriter/producer delving even deeper into the identity she’s developed outside of her former duo THEESatisfaction. It’s got a nostalgic, old-school R&B vibe, which Harris-White juxtaposes with futuristic synth sounds and emotionally available lyrics. But she was nervous about creating an R&B album of her own, specifically “the fear of ultimate vulnerability and judgment” that can come from opening up. But her openness pays off: Tracks like “I’ll Wait for You” and “Games” are relatable for anyone who’s experienced the cycle of love. With cuffing season quickly approaching, the funky tenderness of New Black Swing is the perfect soundtrack. CERVANTE POPE
