Eskimeaux is a Brooklyn indie-pop group led by Gabrielle Smith. She spent several years recording bedroom demos, some of which found their way to artist-led download site Bandcamp; her first proper album, OK, was released last month. Smith also serves as keyboardist and backing vocalist for her friend Frankie Cosmos, another Brooklyn bedsit prodigy whose studio debut Zentropy was a highlight of last year (and was also released on Brooklyn's Double Double Whammy label). The two acts trace a similar path of introspective examinations of twentysomething life; Smith's Eskimeaux is more mournful in its sound, especially on quiet tunes like OK's opening song "Folly." I've been playing this album a lot during the past week and a half and the songs continue to make an impact. I look forward to more from Smith.
