Empress Of is Lorely Rodriguez, the Brooklyn-based singer and producer whose songs make you feel like you’re being smothered by silk pillows and whose debut EP Systems drops today. We’ve already posted the Systems song “Hat Trick,” and now we’ve got a stream of another one, entitled “Tristeza,” below. The track has enough sophisticated twinkle that you might get Stereolab or Broadcast flashbacks, and it’s sung in
French Spanish, so I can’t tell if Rodriguez is singing about the long-running post-rock band who sings the song’s title. I’m just going to assume that she is.
