I’ve been in love with Los Angeles musician Riki’s music since Hot City came out on Symphony of Destruction a couple of years ago. It’s been one of those records we’ve been meaning to write about but somehow fell through the tracks. Imagine my delight when she revealed her first album, which came out on Dais on Valentine’s Day. Simply entitled Riki, it’s a perfect snapshot of her persona Riki Ladyzhynsky. Her amazing vocals float over italo-inspired beats with a prominence that reminds me of Rose McDowall of Strawberry Switchblade. Check out the beautifully produced video for “Napoleon”.
