Music Monday: Tricky’s new album ‘False Idols’

This is something I’ve never done before on this blog. But along with my passion for fashion, I am immensely passionate for music and I just had to share this amazing listen.

If you grew up in the late 80s through the mid 90s, you might remember a genre of music called “trip hop.” I was so obsessed with this genre, which melds hip hop melodies, dub, electronic, rock, etc. that I still listen to it today. Massive Attack, Tricky, Portishead, and Sneaker Pimps are among some of the most famous trip hop artists. I have been a fan of Tricky since the mid 90s and am SO PLEASED with his newest release “False Idols.” Almost 20 years after the heyday of trip hop, Tricky releases an album that is reminiscent of this genre.

NPR explains, “So, once you’ve made your first pass through False Idols (out May 28), go back to the beginning and listen to the album again on its own terms. You’ll be surprised how contemporary Tricky’s signature mix of menace and seduction sounds after his more than 20 years in (and out of) the spotlight.”
