There are definitely things to like about Den-Mate’s full-length debut Loceke. For one, she eschews easy pop thrills for an album that’s darker and grittier. However, Den-Mate, the project of Jules Hale, doesn’t sacrifice its ability to reach exhilarating highs. Hale performed most of the instrumentation on the album to create a tasty sonic blend that has a lot of body to it while also sounding light and airy. It’s a progressive leap from the lo-fi style of last year’s Entropii. Hale realizes influences from multiple genres to arrive at a stout mix of trip-hop and ’90s alt-pop.

That ’90s decade designation is important as today’s alt-pop feels a bit too watered down in comparison to the context behind Loceke’s lyrics. For much of the album, Hale confronts anguish in her past with a new perspective. An obvious stand-out is the album opener, “Charlotte”, but for me, my money is on “Country”. The song pushes forward with a thumping beat while an ethereal underbelly calms the storm. But Hale wisely doesn’t calm the storm too much; allowing her music depth and intensity.
