Hip-Hop/Rap - Verschenen op 19 april 2019 | AMF
In January 2017, the world was left stunned by the release of Yesterday’s Gone; the UK hadn’t produced a rapper of this calibre for quite some time. With this debut album, Benjamin Gerrard Coyle-Larner aka Loyle Carner sensationally burst onto the hip-hop scene, notable for his extraordinary talent more than the relaxed vibe of his record. Loyle Carner does not follow in the path of his contemporaries on the grime scene, but rather the masters of the golden age (Jurassic 5, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest), creating a flow that’s melancholic and almost casual, without the slightest aggressiveness and with extremely mature writing for a 22 year-old.Every nook and cranny of his compositions is imbued with the soul and jazz that he grew up on, and as always with him, storytelling is at the heart of Carner’s sophomore album Not Waving, But Drowning. More of a writer than a rapper, Loyle Carner covers all kinds of subjects, from his mother to football (the penalty shootout between England and Colombia during the 2018 World Cup on It's Coming Home?) to his two fathers (his biological black father and the white father who raised him) and even world-renowned chefs Yotam Ottolenghi and Antonio Carluccio to whom he devotes two songs! With more analogue sounds than on Yesterday’s Gone, Loyle Carner unrolls a soundtrack mixing good old-fashioned boom bap and light funk. And on Desoleil (Brilliant Corners), he hands the mic over to Sampha and on Loose Ends to Jorja Smith, just to spice up a faultless album. Sublime. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
