Dinah Thorpe 

Truths and Other Stories (Indie)

Toronto's Dinah Thorpe understands the line between fact and fiction. Her double disc Truths and Other Stories straddles this divide. Produced, mixed and mastered by the artist, Thorpe layers her ethereal vocals over club-worthy beats. (Imagine Dido if she were a dyke.) Academically minded, much of Thorpe's material dives into queer theory and gender politics. But she takes a fresh approach with "We Brought the Thunder," and "Milk the State Remix," bringing a splash of humour and a good dance beat. As a kid Dinah hated her name, but grew into it---"Someone's in the Kitchen," shows such evolution. "Strap Me In," toys with being provocative, though it's more about having a baby, rather than making babies.
