Alicia Walter - I Am Alicia

Once upon a time Alicia Walter was lead singer with Chicago-based art-rock outfit Oshwa, but for her debut solo release she’s embraced the joy of poppy hooks (the lead single from the album, ‘Standing at Your Doorstep’, is pure Jackson 5 style sunshine). That said, she still knows when to flick that arty switch to ‘On’, and there’s a rich seam of invention woven through these collection of songs, which take in everything from maximalist soul to handclap-inflected skippy pop. Let the good times roll. RM
