Littered with transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends & vast depth, the vintage soul-styled music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis’ unique voice.
‘Food’ is a startling combination of Kelis’ most frank & vulnerable vocals to date, & tv on the radio’s dave Sitek's inimitable sonic imprint. Kelis’ vocals have only improved with time & experience, & the album candidly explores pain, happiness & everything in between. Recorded at Sitek’s house in LA (& entirely produced by him), ‘ Food’ mints a sound that’s rootsy without ever being self-consciously retro, that pitches live horns & gospel organ against electronics, that for all its classic soul & funk influences, couldn’t have been made any time but now. “oddball new york diva dishes up feast of vintage-sounding r&b” 4/5 – mojo.
