Xenia Rubinos lassos in so many different genres, cultures and sounds in her music, but they’re always executed with power and force. I remember the first time I heard “Hair Receding” and how that song seemed to hollow out the inside of my brain. “Black Stars” isn’t that type of grenade, but it’s still flexing some serious muscle. Rubinos’ hard-knocking voice and stamped-down piano chords are an excellent combination.
