Distinctions 4F de Télérama
An androgynous voice reminiscent of Anohni’s of Antony and the Johnsons. A very 80s hushed groove comparable to Everything But The Girl and Sade and an outline worthy of The XX. Rhye’s first album, Woman, released in 2013, came as a real surprise. The improbable LA-based duo, made up of Canadian Mike Milosh and Danish Robin Hannibal, unfolded their R&B with insane sensuality (sexuality?). Five years later, Blood also comes through as a troubling and erotic urban soundtrack. A weightless soul based on the principle of less is more. Unfortunately Hannibal left the project in 2017, leaving Milosh alone aboard this beautiful vessel. As a result, Rhye’s music became more organic, less sophisticated and, in a way, more real. Moreover the falsetto voice of the man in charge is a powerful magnet for the ears. A voice even more beautifully showcased than in Woman, making Blood the apex of refined groove. © MD/Qobuz

In 2010, Mike Milosh flew to Denmark to work on a Quadron remix with that duo's Robin Hannibal. The collaboration grew into another duo, named Rhye, which released two singles on Innovative Leisure in 2012. Milosh and Hannibal weren't forthcoming about being behind the achingly romantic soul-pop elegance of "Open" and "The Fall." Once word got out, it seemed forehead-smacking obvious to anyone familiar with Milosh's solo albums and Hannibal's many involvements, Quadron included. Rhye's Woman, released on a major and front-loaded with the first two A-sides, is an ideal fusion of the two instrumentalists and producers, whose sound is enhanced -- never overstuffed -- with horns, woodwinds, and strings, including harp. Tempos rarely break a breezy pace. When they do, they arrive at just the right time, during the album's latter half. The lilting "3 Days" echoes the Blue Nile's "Tinseltown in the Rain," while "Hunger" is breathy boogie, like a sequel to Owusu & Hannibal's "Lonnie's Secret" with surprisingly well-placed horn skronks. In the main, the purpose is bedroom listening, though the tone is so bright that daytime play seems most suitable. The lyrics are packed with metaphors, yet they are expressed in a heartrending and inviting manner. They don't get more explicit than "I'm a fool for that shake in your thighs" -- the album's opening line. Milosh's voice, high and sigh-like, is frequently likened to that of the significantly deeper and richer Sade but is closer to that of Michael Franks. Beside Hannibal, he's made his most expressive and pleasurable material to date. Anyone new to Hannibal's work should start with Quadron's self-titled album and then check the group Boom Clap Bachelors, the album Living with Owusu & Hannibal, Szjerdene's "Lead the Way," and Leon Ware's "Orchids for the Sun." Milosh has three albums on Plug Research, home to Quadron, all of which are worth some time. © Andy Kellman /TiVo

After a period of demanding touring in support of the second Rhye album, Mike Milosh decompressed by starting his mornings in front of a baby grand piano, and informally worked on new material a touch lighter than his previous releases as Rhye. Spirit, a mini-album of sorts with three instrumentals and five vocal numbers, is consequently even more ambient than the silken Woman and Blood. Milosh still clearly writes of longing and devotion and remains unguarded, but sometimes vocalizes at a volume low enough -- matching the sparse, sensitive instrumentation -- to resemble a somniloquist. It might not be a coincidence that the most emotive and well-defined songs are collaborations. "Needed" (Dan Wilson), "Patience" (Ólafur Arnalds), and "Save Me" (Doveman) are also the standouts on this abbreviated set, which feels almost as secondary as Blood Remixed. © Andy Kellman /TiVo
