This is a record that's a little bit of a 'grower' for me. At first I didn't know what to make of this genre-dodging EP, but something persisted in me. Something made me listen to it on repeat several times. And how my patience has paid off.

Ute - The Gambler EP by alcopop
In just five songs, Ute manages to combine several influences, genres, and styles and successfully interweave elements of seemingly incompatible categories into mesmerising, often dark narratives with a bewitching soundtrack. All this would not be out of place in a Tim Burton film, as a friend of mine remarked upon hearing Ute's songs.
Released on Alcopop in early December last year, I just thought you should know, this thing's been playing on the stereo for a while now.
