Torres is the nom de rock of Nashville native Mackenzie Scott. Her debut album, also called "Torres", is officially out this week and Pitchfork immediately jumped on it with praise and a rare 8.1 rating, "Torres... in the league of artists like PJ Harvey or EMA. Like them, she paints in whole-hand smears when the moment calls for it. Her ability to capture and sustain a single spellbinding mood conjures the hypnotic hurt of the earliest, best Songs:Ohia or Cat Power. Her record is an overwhelming rush of feeling, and it connects with throat-seizing immediacy." Heady stuff for a new artist debut but it's deserved. The album is mesmerizing. Torres performs this Friday, Feb. 8, at the Basement and will join us for a free, all ages in-store at Grimey's next Tuesday, Feb. 12.
