Three albums released earlier this year or even last year are enchanting us during the sunny beginning of our week (and in self-isolation, of course). A flash each to discover them.
A MEDIO CAMINO – TAWA
This path in Spanish, A Medio Camino, is the work of art of Tawa. We talked about them a couple of years ago, so it was only logical to us to get the light on them again for the release of their debut album. Between meditation and dreamy adventures, we take a big breath of fresh air as we get to know more the charming French music. Available on YouTube and soon on every other platform, we are driven by them during almost an hour without being able to or to want to, make these soft tracks stop. This album is inspiring, like a bright awakening.
KINO MUSIC – PIERRE DAVEN-KELLER
Pierre Daven-Keller succeeded to put the sun into music with Kino Music, no doubt about that. Of course, the album has something very cinematic about it and we love the Nouvelle Vague vibe that we get from it, sensual, light and wheedling, like La Fiancée de l’Atome, Dakota Jim or Jerk. As we listen to it, we walk (mentally, obviously) with Daven-Keller and his guests Helena Noguerra, Claire Tillier, Arielle Dombasle and Mareva Galanter, along the edge of an imaginary dock, fresh air getting in the boats’ masts. And we love it. Where’s your imaginary dock?
BRITISH HAWAII – HEY HEY MY MY
It is by pure and complete chance that we discovered British Hawaii, Hey Hey My My’s brand new album. Everything is in the name. This very bright album has something uniquely British. And it has nothing to do with a massive cloud getting in front of the sun that would spoil our just born spring (yeah, we too have sunshine), but it has something to do with its ways, its je-ne-sais-quoi that is so British… which is really funny coming from a French band! We love it, of course. With their pop tainted rock, they convinced us with their third studio album. Well done.
Azulada – Tawa
Cuore Selvaggio – Pierre Daven-Keller
Tennessee – Hey Hey My My
