Jenn Grant has earned a rep as one of Canada's most highly regarded folk pop artists, and she more than lives up to it on her new LP, Paradise -- even if it's not quite what listeners will have expected. Much of her sixth album is subtly but thoroughly infused with synths, and characterized by R&B-style rhythms. But rather than disappoint Grant's folk contingent, Paradise should impress them -- Grant's vast range is a thrill to behold. "Sorry Doesn't Know," for instance, grooves like a stripped-down Bee Gees song (think Feist's cover of "Inside and Out,") its strategic horn blasts adding to that slick vibe.
