When I saw the title of Bronx singer Maxine Ashley‘s Booth debut, Glory Box, I didn’t expect it to be a cover of the Portishead cut of the same name. After all, who has the chops to do justice to that legendary tune? Well, Maxine Ashley for one. Ashley manages to keep the raw, sultry vibe of the original, but still puts her own spin on the record. Over Kerry “Krucial’ Brothers’s subtle flip of the original instrumental, Ashley showcases a silky vocal style that really cuts through the beat’s moody vibe. Glory Box is the first release off Ashley’s Moodswings EP, due out September 17.
