SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on September 12, 2005 at 4:33 pm

Sound: Wispy vocals icily glide over an impressive array of synthesizer pop that alternates between bubblegum (think Kylie Minogueicon and Madonnaicon), clubby (think Miss Kittinicon and Sneaker Pimpsicon), and loungey (think Everything But the Girlicon)
Notes: She’s Norwegian and has been a part of the Bergen, Norway scene for years. Her debut Anniemal was released in her homeland last year and in the U.S. this June.
Heavy Rotation tracks:Chewing Gumicon” (Top 20 Songs of 2005 Candidate); “Always Too Lateicon“; “Happy Without Youicon
Medium Rotation tracks: The resticon, except for “My Best Friend”
Recommended: With some songs suitable for the hippest nightclubs and others perfect for a junior high dance, Annie’s got an unusually wide range of expertly produced, bona fide hits. There should be something on here for just about everyone.
Grade: A (Top 20 Albums of 2005 Candidate)
