Morcheeba

In the mid-90s, trip hop was getting trendy via smooth electronic bands like Massive Attack and Portishead, and British brothers Paul and Ross Godrey joined the fray by forming Morcheeba along with the singer Skye Edwards. They had a hit ’98 with “The Sea,” a woozy dream of a song led by Edwards’ luscious vocals. In subsequent years, the Godfreys made the mistake of letting Edwards go and filtered through a series of unsuccessful replacement singers. But the original trio is now back together, the brothers having admitted their error, and last year’s Blood Like Lemonade, Morcheeba’s comeback album of sorts, is a true return to form, all delicate, settling melodies, stony grooves, and that soulful, stunning voice of Edwards’. With The Mumlers. ERIN K. THOMPSON
