The third album from this Pakistani-American singer was dedicated to the memory of her late brother, which explains its sorrowful restraint. Her vocals are moving in their sparseness, but if the arrangements are mournful and minimalist, they’re also exquisite and enchanting. Originally released on the New Amsterdam label, the album is as beguiling as it is distinct. A Top of the World in the July 2021 issue (#169).
