Review: It would be fair to say that there are few guitarists that can boast the skills of Malina Moye. Over the last few years, her profile has rocketed, thanks in no small part to significant coverage in U.S music bible Rolling Stone. Of course, it helps that the music she makes is pretty darn good. Bad As I Wanna Be, her latest full-length excursion, is arguably her strongest work to date. As with previous excursions, it sees her fuse her love of gnarled fuck-rock guitar riffs and blazing solos with beats, instrumentation and vocals from across the soul music spectrum. So, while some songs could be compared to, say, Sly and the Family Stone, others veer closer to Outkast, modern R&B, smooth hip-hop soul and the P-funk antics of Parliament/Funkadelic. Throughout, her sumptuous vocals and axe-wielding exploits naturally take centre stage.
