An album from a vocal octet that sounds utterly original? Yep. The singers of Roomful of Teeth go from making guttural noises to singing heartbrakingly beautiful melodies and back again so quickly you won't even know what's happening, but it would be hard not to notice that what they're doing is amazing. Consistently powerful and moving, this debut is a wonder, and a strong album of the year contender.
