In need of sun or holidays? No need to go far away (after all the pandemic’s still here) to get our fix of it. There are three albums to discover on the sunshine road. Flashes.
ARCHEOLOGY – JAY BRUSH
It’s a successful debut album for Jay Brush who’s offering the fruit of his researches with Archeology. However, we have to warn you, this album is for the lovers of synths, echoes, soft disco and neon colours everywhere. It’s quite simple, Brush is flamboyant. His crystal voice seems so delicate, ready to break at a demanding note, and yet it is strong and gets dancing tunes out. If he thanks the listeners at the end, we feel like we should be the one saying thanks. So there we are, sharing.
LES MADELEINES – SAMARES
Duet Samares unveiled their debut mini-album, Les madeleines, last June. Of a mini-album, this opus only gets the shape. The subject and poetry have everything of a full opus. Their shiny folk tickles blues guitar solos (J’te laisse) and tender ballads (Les cerisiers). Explorers, Élodie and Jonas have proven their worth in just more than twenty minutes. Able to get us through the day, showing motivation and softness, from dawn until dusk, the duet makes something new with French variety and needs all our attention.
HATE FOR SALE – PRETENDERS
Do we really need to present the cult band Pretenders? They have gained their spot among the most important rock bands ever. And their new album, freshly out of the press, Hate For Sale, isn’t going to say otherwise. Classic on many points, the album smells good of concrete, bricks and cheekiness. Alive and efficient, mad and sparkling, we can’t be disappointed by the final product. Some tracks are dark but the whole thing grabs us from start to finish with the great savoir-faire that we know the English-American band is capable of.
