Meshell Ndegeocello: Devil’s Halo


MNalbumThe openly bi, undisputed queen of the bass once again defies musical categorization. Her discordant, whale-like moan of “Slaughter” erupts dramatically and violently, spills over into the gentle “Tie One On,” pounds into “White Girl,” eventually winding down into the delicate, instrumental title track. What a ride. Oct. 6. Mercer Street Records (mercerstreetrecords.com). (See also OutSmart‘s interview with Ndegeocello this month: “Ace of Bass.”) —Review: Nancy Ford
