In this week's Baker's Dozen, Lucrecia Dalt speaks to Matthew Neale about her love of jazz, crafting an alter-ego for her new record, and the delimiting forces of language


The Upsetters – Return Of Django
I love reggae, and I’ve been getting more into it in the past few years. I guess what I love about this one is it’s not Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry’s expected signature sound – he barely uses delay or feedback as he usually does, and that makes this record so different from anything else. I feel this conscious melody and super well-composed structure is unexpected from him. It’s just a record that I love listening to from beginning to end. It makes me question how I can achieve that level of distortion through tape or manipulation.
