One Hand Loves The Other - One Hand Loves The Other (2007)

This the debut album from One Hand Loves The Other, from Atlanta. They take their name from the lyrics to the final song on Bjork's masterpiece Vespertine. They achieve a similar mood to that album, but with more prominent drum programming. Their myspace says the make a 'classically infused version of electro-pop'; which also features vocals, piano, cello, on top of the precise, yet glitchy electronic beats. It is distinct, and down-tempo electronic pop music, with a modern classical bent . The vocals may take a few listens to get used to, as it shifts between highs and lows, .. but if you don't mind an occasional falsetto, you should realy enjoy this. It is a fully realized listening experience.

Unfortunately, they disbanded in 2008, after releasing a final remix album, but have reformed again as Tealights.

    I've only had a few random tracks of this album show up while shuffling, but from what I've heard this is a nice album.
