FKA twigs operates like a hermetic, with her electronic R&B as much a state of emotions as a series of notes straggling across a computer screen. There's a marvelously unnerving quality about LP1. "Was I just a..." she sings on "Numbers" before breathing heavily and parodying sex throes, while "Video Girl" references her work as a dancer and satirizes the video model as pliant object. But she can be predatory, too -- check the rapturously erotic "Two Weeks" -- as well as empathetic. "I wish that you'd know that I'm here to stay," she sings, offering herself as an anchor amid a world of chaos.
