While the mixtape is a bit of a hit-n-miss for me, she really had something a-brewing with "Sleep" as it features a pretty slick interpolation of Radiohead's "Lotus Flower" to where it sounds like Thom Yorke is right there in attendance with Rochelle, their voices just effortlessly melding in the mix. Like I said---bold. Yet, all of what Rochelle is mashing and mixing fabulously works, and it's proving that she's not the only Canadian to be delving into the deep dungeons of R&B to create moody pieces that rival the Playskool kiddie bop of what is being dubbed R&B these days.
In addition to her mixtape, Rochelle's is still churning out the tunes as a loner single, "Shot" was released yesterday, and it's pretty decent and continues to build on Rochelle's growing intrigue.
