  • LOVE TRAP is the sexy follow-up to Susheela Raman's Mercury Prize-nominated album SALT RAIN. Raman is a native of England, born of South Indian parents, and raised in Australia. Her multi-cultural background enhances her global vision of world music. By bending and reshaping her myriad of musical influences, Raman has recorded a pleasing and erotically charged album of music that pulls from various folk music traditions to create a unique hybrid. "Love Trap" is the most accessible and appealing track on the album. One of the two English-language vocals, "Love Trap" is a sensual, jazzy re-working of a 1970s Ethiopian club hit. Its throbbing beat chugs along while Raman's siren-like vocals beckon and entice the listener into her snare. The album's other seven tracks are sung in various languages, incorporating a myriad of styles, including Tuvan throat singing and the complex wail of India's traditional Carnatic vocals. With the help of producer and guitarist Sam Mills, LOVE TRAP flirts with trip-hop, rock, and electronica while respecting its musical roots. The music pulsates with energy and each musician is given a chance to shine on the album's many instrumental interludes. LOVE TRAP is sophisticated, sexy, and sure to be considered a classic in the career of this rising star.
