Primal Heart (Warner Bros.)
Best known as the vocalist on Gotye’s inescapable mega-hit, “Somebody that I Used to Know,” New Zealand-based songstress Kimbra fully comes into her own on this, her third full-length release. Primal Heart’s lead single, “Top of the World,” (co-produced by acclaimed EDM DJ Skrillex) is a thrilling and entrancing anthem, combining bass-heavy beats with global grooves. Kimbra’s at her finest when she’s displaying bare emotion — and she’s never been this raw or vulnerable before. Primal Heart is pure magic.
