Today, Friday 5, is quite an overloaded day for music releases with lots of amazing things out. We had to make choices so here are three surprising records to discover. Flashes.
BOREDOMS & HEARTSTRINGS – EROTIC MARKET
Some strings. A voice. A gripping atmosphere. This is the new proposition by Erotic Market with her new record, Boredoms & Heartstrings, a beautiful follow up to the visual and therapeutic album Boredoms. It is by The Heartstrings Ensemble, a classical quartet, that Marine Pellegrini decides to be supported this time. Romain Dugelay gets to the arrangement and it’s another world that we’re discovering, pop, classical and stripped down of its electro structure for a softer, more charming and intimate result. We love to rediscover Liquid Sunshine with these new ideas
EN ÉQUILIBRE – CAROLE MASSEPORT
On a thread of fine music, Carole Masseport sings her fails, her successes, and other changes. En équilibre is an album filled with universality. On se remet de tout, the duet En équilibre with JP Nataf, Rien n’y fera, Cœur de dentelle… here are some tracks getting into hard moments, strong emotions, and are understandable by everyone. One is a jewel with Oriental inspirations: the powerful Calais, tender, empathetic, and still politically important. Overall, this French variety record is focusing on Masseport’s transcendent voice, lifted by soft instrumentations, dreamlike, sometimes nostalgic, and always with great balance.
THE SUMMER ENDS – OLD MOUNTAIN STATION
It is with a foggy atmosphere that we step into Adios, the very first track of The Summer Ends. Weirdly enough, it all goes very well with the end of this strange winter we’ve just been through. Band Old Mountain Station is between modern rock and vintage new wave. The little synth is getting some very catchy colourful and wistful touches. The vocals, however, are very clear and offer a beautiful contrast with some of the bass lines and power riffs the band gets on songs like Don’t You Know, the last one. A nice record overall.
