7digital What we said: After the success of Kala, M.I.A. found herself an unlikely household name. Fortunately, the Sri Lankan maverick didn’t let newfound infamy or motherhood tame her and, instead, headed back to the studio with Diplo, Rusko and Derek Miller. Her resulting third album, /\/\ /\ Y /\, serves as another reminder that our favourite magpie of music is never happier than when subverting a gazillion genres, layering them up with a jumble of samples, her trusty Kaossilator and distorted singing/rapping. So we get apocalyptic Bhangra, digital R&B, warped reggae and psychotic electro-rock, whilst she pours scrutiny on everything from terrorism to iPhones. It’s completely nuts, but then sounding like nobody else is what M.I.A. does best.
