10. Jessy Lanza
For an artist who has worked with both Junior Boys and Caribou, Jessy Lanza often doesn’t get enough attention for her solo work. The bouncy, spritely Canadian singer-songwriter has clear ties to the electronic music world, but her own music tends to lean towards more approachable synthpop. Lanza seemed magnetically attached to her keyboard at Le Guess Who?, her FKA twigs-esque dance moves guiding her away momentarily, only to be drawn right back to lead the way behind the instrument’s beautiful silver overlay. Even when pressing at the keys, she continuously moved, as if her body were generating the easy, bright, dance-friendly tunes. Lanza and her drummer kicked through “Kathy Lee” (from 2013’s Pull My Hair Back) and never looked back, engaging the growing crowd with her minimalist synthpop.
