Hi-Res
Sebastien Tellier is back with Simple Mind, an album made up of stripped back re-editions of his biggest tracks. This latest offering could easily have come straight out of the 80s with its abundance of CP80, clavinet and DX7 keyboards. Tellier’s vocal performances are unusual. Singing both in English and French with his signature French accent, the dark low rumble of his voice cuts through the tracks like sunlight on a foggy day. Opening with Domestic Tasks, ominous droning elements veer in and out of focus as a groovy, funk infused clavinet jams away in the background. Some would say that the version of Look on this album is somewhat lacking compared to the original. With the palm muted guitars and synth pads long gone, we instead get M83 Junk era sounds. We are greeted by a Yamaha DX7 laying the foundation before Tellier’s signature syncopated Yamaha CP80 piano joins the ensemble. Pitch shifted notes flutter in the width of the stereo field, creating a lush atmosphere that would be right at home in a melancholic 80s drama. Intromission speaks the language of Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein with a soft brass arpeggiated on a vintage synthesiser. But that’s as far as language goes, as the lyrics on this track don’t go beyond the word ‘ah’. This is perhaps slightly pretentious, but the beautifully sombre piano that comes in halfway through makes up for this. Stuck in the past, both in its production and rehashing of past works, Simple Mind is just that: simple. But simplicity is the key to great music! © Tom Oscar Adams/Qobuz

Hi-Res
Gainsbourg and Birkin, Tellier and Von Teese. Daring, sure: but the comparison spatters off the face of Sparkling Rain, and shows up on Rendez-Vous and then La Vie est en jeu where our beauty howls in French. With a glamour tinged with eroticism, this first collaboration, inspired by pleasure, seduces with a mysterious air of unreality. The maestro of French style electro pop has offered the Venus of Michigan the ideal platform for the first striptease act to have ever really laid her bare. It was backstage at Crazy Horse that Tellier first met Von Teese. Who could be more iconic, more novel or more foreign, to be unleashed onto his tailor-made arrangements? He came back to her with a ready-made album, on which she would need to do nothing more than say yes, and lay down her vocals. Through his dark dandy glasses, worn almost askew, Tellier had a clear vision. A hail of sunbeam synths on sensual, poppy love songs written for four hands and his wife Amandine de la Richardière; an angular shadow rather than a mistress, Sparkling Rain fizzes with perfect comic-strip bubbles. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
