Our selection out of this week’s new releases is pretty eclectic and diverse, and we love it. We’re jumping into soul music, french variety and some hook garage rock. Flashes.
MEMORIES OF LOVE – MYLES SANKO
Jazz music is often pretty opaque to me, and R’n’B and Soul are genres I don’t often put forward on Unis Son. However, Myles Sanko’s new album has touched me as he mixed and put forward these three genres with elegance and universality. With a strong voice and charming instrumentations, Sanko let piano and strings talk as much as his lyrics. Memories Of Love has something inviting and warm, dancing although sometimes it turns to nostalgia (Broken, Never My Friend), and just for these facts and its light old school vibe, it deserves a good listen.
COURTS MÉTRAGES – RENARDE
Through five tracks, Renarde shows five paintings, five sequences, five short films. And Courts Métranges exactly means that, giving to his new EP a perfect title. Between the Nouvelle Vague, with its colourful slightly vintage side (À l’Envers), and its inspirations going from Pop and Blues to Rock, between surf and film noir (Une Fin au Silence, L’Enfer), the result is dazzling. The images get in the air quickly has the violins, guitars and Renarde’s voice rise up, purring the lyrics into our ears. It is hard not to melt in front of the talent displayed in this first record.
ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY (THEN WE’LL BEGIN) – CHAY SNOWDON
In need of an energetic kick? No worries, Chay Snowdon has our backs with exactly that. In this EP, the introduction invites us to take place in a comfortable seat before they begin. It goes without saying (but I will note it still), that we’ve abandoned this seat as soon as the first note of the first song, What The Kids Want, has rung. The Plymouth’s band is shaking us through and through with garage rock, with a touch of glam. Are You Sitting Comfortably (Then We’ll Begin) is a new favourite of ours and we really hope to hear more from Chay Snowdon soon enough.
