North Las Vegas, known as Northtown, seems an unlikely musical inspiration—yet the area’s apparent absurdities and contradictions seem almost quintessentially American. A sprawling gambling resort surrounded by industrial parks and strip malls are all set against a backdrop of beautiful but unforgiving desert. 19-year-old singer Shamir Bailey, is himself a similar anomaly and a new voice of androgyny in America. -James Jolliff
