Dua Saleh: Rosetta [Against Giants, 2020]
I doubt this allusively sexual, explicitly nonbinary Sudanese-American poet-turned-siren would be as seductive without the wavery, toned soundbeds laid out by producer Psynum. Insofar as the lyrics parse, which they pretty much do, the objects of desire and speculative interest designated in these six songs tend female. But as both musical confabulations and imaginable human subjects, their erotic appeal is what I would call universal. Voila--trans eros for anyonewho cares to join in.
