Producer Guy Sigsworth has worked with numerous superstars, including Madonna and Björk. Singer Imogen Heap issued a solo album (Megaphone) four years ago. These days, the London-based Sigsworth and Heap are working together as Frou Frou. Tailor-made for post-club chill-out sessions, as well as weekend brunches at hip cafés, Details delights with warm electronic beats, organic guitars, and multi-tiered strings. Floating in and above this rich musical foundation are the sublime vocals of Heap. Fans of Dido will surely find much to admire here, particularly tracks like the gentle "Let Go," the Saint Etienne-inflected "It's Good to Be in Love," the positively buoyant "Must Be Dreaming," and the beautiful, piano-fueled "The Dumbing Down of Love." On the set's lead single, the melancholic "Breathe In," Heap sings, "I read you/And God I'm good at it/I'm so spot on." Those last three words are also a perfectly fine description of Details.—MP
