The first commercial recording to be jointly released by a college label and major record company, Shekinah (a word meaning "she who dwells within") is a satisfyingly unique project featuring 13 talented female graduates of the Berklee College of Music. Each artist's individual pop, rock, hip-hop, folk, or metal song bursts with feeling—be it bitterness (Cami's "Another Lullaby") or exuberance (Anne Chandler's "Last Day in May"). With tracks such as the electronic mood-setter "Out of My Mind" by Polina, the catchy dance-inflected "With or Without You" by Rhea, and Mancain's angry, hardcore "Please the Devil," listeners are sure to find something to slake their musical passion. The student-run Heavy Rotation Records and Epic have created a rather stellar look at the future of music.—JP
