Evy Jane – Sayso
Although Evelyn Jane Mason sings lines like “you’re my daddy, you’re my daddy, you’re my daddy” in a tone of desperate whisper, “Sayso” isn’t all that evocative of sex. It’s the absolute darkness and hopelessness of a mix that is comprised of a transmogrified incarnation of R&B that sounds something like dub. At points, things feel so bleak that, as hard as Mason pushes and pulls, sex doesn’t even fit into the picture. “Sayso” is, in essence, a nocturnal tune; a courageous exploration of dark emotion.
