Pip Blom

Album Review: Boat By Pip Blom (8/10)

Named after their magnetic singer, Amsterdam’s Pip Blom are every drop as sophisticated and cool as the city from which they hail, and that quality has enabled this rising band to open slots for the likes of The Breeders and Garbage. Bursting with craveworthy beats and infectious moments, what ultimately makes this art rock debut’s pistons fire is their charismatic frontwoman’s silky yet brash vocals, pregnant with heady, sexy appeal. Featuring “Daddy Issues,” “Ruby,” it’s a concoction seemingly custom built to please the palette of your average SPIN editor, but is there anything wrong with that?

Rating: 8/10
