Every so often we encounter an artist that fits into the folk category but is doing their own thing. Quebec's Alexia Avina is one of those rare artists. "Attitude" is definitely folk, and despite being an acoustic song, it's not very traditional. Avina uses voice and guitar loops to create this almost ambient sound, but with standard song structure. I really hate overusing the terms "ethereal" and "delicate" with female musicians, but those terms work perfectly with "Attitude." It's a heartbreakingly gorgeous song combining folk with the extreme mellow side of 90's electronica, and with maybe the tiniest bit of Stereolab thrown in.
