[AUTOTUNE-DA-FE] A Gayngs-related side project from the far northern indie fiefdom ruled by Bon Iver, Minnesota quartet Polica’s 2012 debut, Give You the Ghost, stirred no little controversy by embracing electronically aided vocal correction devices as unabashedly as any Top 40 prefab puppet show. Whatever instrumentation might seem most appropriate for tunes encompassing reflections upon a crumbled marriage—Polica’s standard set-up of two drummers and nimble bassist wringing heartache from sheer momentum—there’s little shame in demanding an idealized clarity of vocals, but a string of recent buzz-building live shows have proven chanteuse Channy Leaneagh more than capable of perfecting her pitch without resorting to technological gimmickry.  For all the abuse (rightfully) hurled at lazy overproduction meant to disguise an artist’s failings, any crutch artfully employed can add new dimensions to the most familiar ballet. By immersing herself within the digitized artifice, Leaneagh’s tortured solipsism achieves a distinctly alien grandeur.
