Whilst we get news falling on us today, we’re also falling under the overwhelming amount of feel-good and peaceful music released. Here’s our selection. Flashes.
THIS IS REALLY GOING TO HURT – FLYTE
Sometimes, the 60s/70s atmosphere coming from a new record is fitting the tone of the day perfectly. And Flyte’s new album, This Is Really Going To Hurt, is exactly that. It’s a beautiful way for them to come back. With soft guitars, tender melodies, a voice resonating through space, and backup vocals answering harmoniously, we’re charmed. It’s a story of love, break-up, vulnerability and loss that takes place here. Easy Tiger, Under The Skin, Mistress America, Never Get To Heaven are among our favourite of this relaxing introspective record.
PINHOLE LOOP AND REPLAY – MORSEGGO
The blues-country riffs rolling out of the very first track, Sleep With An Angel, are more than enough for us to be fully captivated. Morseggo’s stories are moving up and down, between grace and divine sobriety (Nothing but a Pang, Spell) and the dark depth of Hell (Broken Clock). Set with folk and blues, the French artist trusts himself, without ever following something else but his instinct. And we’re behind, on this sinuous, yet clear enough, path, without the shadow of a doubt. Pinhole Loop and Replay might be a bit long, but it’s made with great peace of mind.
L’INVITATION – FREEDOM FRY
It’s our Pop album this week. With vibrant colours, fading slowly, the French-American duo Freedom Fry is coming back to square one. Their first single, Le Point Zéro, is a perfect musical transcript of the feeling. This new beginning is unveiling through this French sang record, L’Invitation. And it is an invitation indeed. We’re getting into a peculiar world, made of psychedelic guitars and floating vocals, like a familiar yet brand new sensorial experiment. We’re letting ourselves fall for Corde Sensible and Gang de Filles, hooking tracks to go for first.
