The Appetizer starts off with "N2U," a free-form duet with Marsha Ambrosius where both artists sing freestyled, off-the-cuff lyrics over what could pass for an early-'90s Pete Rock beat. It's followed by "What I Gotta Do?" and its early Dilla-esque production where Roberson, as usual, displays his knack for marrying breezy new-soul grounded with an authentic hip-hop sound core. The album as a whole is a varied one, with everything from odes to '90s R&B duets ("The Moon") to songs like "Hesitation," which isn't satisfied until it takes a coda detour. It's a more than solid effort by one of the era's most consistent artists.

Let’s Head for Cape Verde

Ever since the Portuguese annexed this collection of desert islands in the 15th century to make it a slave trade hub, the Black and Portuguese populations have mixed over time to give birth to a brand new language and brand new music—each island more or less developing its own style—, transforming the Cape Verdean dry lands into a bottomless talent pool.

The harmonious Accords Croisés

Concert organisers, record label, publishing house, festival organisers and managers of an artistic drop-in centre, Accords Croisés celebrate their 20th birthday and 15 years of their label. Founder Saïd Assadi tells the story of these two decades.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.
