Jem Reviews on Yahoo! Music Finally Woken, Jem’s full-length debut, fleshes out the It All Starts Here EP with six additional tracks. It features the addicting title track, the one that blew away KCRW and Nic Harcourt and got her signed to ATO, and it really is quite brilliant. With a dizzy main loop and loping percussion that undulates slyly beneath Jem’s dusky vocal detachment, it sounds like what would happen if Beth Orton started bouncing ideas off of Super Furry Animals’ hard drive.
