New Electronic Discovery: UNA - The Laughing Man

UNA is an electronica/jazz/art-rock trio - Jennifer Cook on vocals, Richard Larsen on keys and production and Eddie Barajas on turntables. She's a terrific singer, and they do a great job putting together a soundscape to support her. Whether on piano, electronic keys or synths, Larsen keeps this grounded near the jazz genre. The addition of Barajas' turntables carry this into the realm of what's commonly known as "trip hop" - and there you go.

Me? I like the vocals best of all.
Here's a teaser video with some music and some talk about the record and their sound:

Here's lead track "The Astronomer":

I'm told an album of remixes will be out in May, featuring Nightmares on Wax and The Herbaliser, to name a few. This album is out now.
