After providing backing vocals for Ontario Junior Boys’ 2011 morose opus It’s All True, Canadian singer Jessy Lanza enlisted Jeremy Greenspan for her debut earlier this year, the semi-bombastic, dreamy and fantastic Pull My Hair Back. Though the Junior Boys frontman lingers in the record’s bedroom-ready ambience, Lanza’s r&b sensibilities and playful touches — a breathy number called “Kathy Lee,” looping “fuck that” as a lyrical prop, the intrinsic hair flip of “As If” — make this effort all her own.
